Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Rebuilding a T2 turbo, everything came off like gravy except the last part.. cannot get that shaft nut off the intake side. Any tricks or advise? If I come on to it anymore i'm going to snap the shaft, added propane heat but no luck so far.

I tore down three T1 turbos for practice leading up to this one with no issues at all, now the one I need is giving me this trouble

And no.. I am not/will not send it away for rebuild

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Many aftermarket and newer turbine shafts are left hand threads. Are you turning the wrong way?

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

I did not know it was possible to rebuild ones own turbo...that is awesome!!

How about leaving it in the freezer for a couple of hours and then try break it lose?

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

All the T1 garrett's and mitsu's were right hand, would be good to know though for sure on the T2 Garrett...

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Got it off successfully.. finally, just propane and patience. It is right hand turn to avoid any confusion, thanks to those that pitched in.

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Where did you get your rebuild kit from? The only reliable place seems to be gpop shop

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Yes G-pop is where bought mine from, $49 for a basic kit isn't unreasonable I think.

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Wont be installed till the spring, but I dont se there being any short term issuses, putting it back together is very simple, as long as you mark the position of the intake compressor wheel

I have had that question too, but again if it was fine before the rebuild changing the bearings doesn't change the balance does it??

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

it could be argued that removing the wheel from the shaft could/can/does change the balance, some do balance( i do) others dont and dont have any problems, it's a gamble.

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

A gamble im willing to take, for 50 bucks and I only plan to get 1 or two summers out of it before the motor gets yanked out, it is only a sunday driver. I am running 14 psi

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

I wouldn't worry about it. It should hold up just fine. I bought a Super 60 turbo probably 5 or 6 years ago and rebuilt it. Slapped it in the car and it's been just fine running 18 psi over and over (no BOV either - haven't got around it installing it). The turbos take a beating and keep on ticking.

Re: Turbo - Intake side shaft nut cannot remove

Ironically I have more radial (side to side) shaft play after the rebuild kit, it's not hitting the housing but dam close to it, I am feeling timid about throwing this in the car now...
