Aligning Turbo to Y-Pipe For the Do-It-Yourself
For the do-it-yourself guys out there.....
I just got done with an oil cooler and BPD EGR
cooler on my 6.0. Everything came out and went back together way easier than I thought. Except for the turbo to the y-pipe. I fought it like a circle saw until I searched through the forum and found some using a ratchet strap to slightly pull the pipe to the turbo. When my turbo was sitting on the pedestal, it was close to aligning, but needed just a touch of persuasion. I hooked the strap to the pipe and the front of the radiator support, over the right front head light, after two clicks, it was just a fraction from seating. I took a block of wood and a small sledge and tapped it once. BOOM! Fell right in the hole. For those wondering about this trick, it works.
