I'm going to rebuild a 87 garrett from a 2.2 LeBaron . I did watch someone do this bout a year ago. Got a complete kit G-Pop. I do have a couple questions. As I recall the guy I watched used a 3sided file and scribed a line up mark on the turbine wheel+the nut+ the shaft...as to realign the parts later. Also what would the torque be for the turbine shaft nut ?? The shaft nut usually RIGHT or LEFT hand thread ? Any help would be great Thanks.

Far as I know, you can take it all apart and just when you put it back together "is simply tighten the nut hand tight until it touches the compressor wheel then turn it with a wrench 1/4 turn for right hand threaded shafts.. for left handed shafts same thing except only go 1/8 turn to tighten left hand threaded shaft nuts."

Aside from that, you just put it all back together. I may be wrong or misinformed, but I don't believe so. My car isn't running yet so I can't say exactly.

Search here and on Google. I have read a few DIY rebuilds and it seems easy

I just rebuilt my garrett T3 (89 TII) using a g pop shop.

Correct, that is what the paperwork g-pop sent me said, yours didn't come with instruction papers? Also the majority of the old factory garrett's are right hand thread. By what I understand new/newer garrett's are left hand thread. BE CAREFUL! If it isn't apart yet look closely at the shaft threads to determine left or right, don't assume!

I used a fine point permenant marker and marker the turbine shaft on the top and the compressor wheel. Just had to be careful to the rub the marks away when your cleaning things up. Don't bother marking the nut, use the new one supplied in the g-pop kit (have a look at it first, they gave me a left hand thread nut but I got a right hand sent to me with some more parts I broke).
