Turbo Kits


Recommended Posts

Rotomaster is an american company that makes their products here but I've never dealt with any of their products personal. That being said personally I would go with a genuine holset kit since I've always got good quality parts from cummins/holset.

I tend to agree to use a Holset kit as well. Even though you can get cheaper kits off Ebay and web not worth it to cut corners on quality.

 

Personally I would just get a new gasket most likely doesn't cost much but why deal with a good rebuild and possibly have to change a manifold gasket because you cut corners again. Might as well get a gasket kit (manifold gasket, oil-return gasket, and oil o-ring for the feed line).

I have mine apart and soaking now.  The manual from Holset is pretty good.  Hopefully put it back together tonight

 

The best solvent that I was told for peeling all that baked on carbon and junk is Carb Dip. Just make sure to remove all rubber part before dipping.

Sorry it's been awhile but its back together and running great.  A few things you may need when rebuilding your turbo.  A good in lb torque wrench, and small long snap ring pliers. I would also get the gasket for the rear cover, the one that covers the waste gate, the kit doesn't come with one.  Mine was worn but I reused it. The only hard part was getting the exhaust housing apart.  I would try carb dip or acitone to clean, mineral spirits didn't work that well.  Also my snap ring pliers were to short to reach the one snap ring so I had to fight with it a little.  The Holset manual was pretty good.
