Changing Exhaust housing on 38R

Some bolts look to be tough to get to, like compressor housing and backing plate need to come off. This means wheel comes off, too from what it looks.

Any tips on how to get the wheel off, and anything else to help get the exh. housing off?

Thanks.

Re: Changing Exhaust housing on 38R

Just use an end wrench. Just because it looks like you could easily do it with a socket.... don't get caught up in that.

12pt 8mm combination wrench does the trick just fine. Do not take all that sh*t off.


At least that's how I've always done it.

Re: Changing Exhaust housing on 38R

I have it in my head that it's been on the truck and rusted solid for 200k miles, since those are the trucks that I'm used to working on.
In reality, the turbo is brand new so I'm glad to hear it'll come off with a measly 'ole box wrench with no torching needed...


Thanks!

You have to get a good quality end wrench. The cheap ones won't fit in there..

Re: Changing Exhaust housing on 38R

I removed the turbo to replace my output flange with the non EBPV one. Us a 12 point wrench to loosen the bolts, that is key, you use a socket on them and they snap, good luck dealing with that mess. The only bitch with removing the turbo is the clamp behind it, gotta get a nice bent rod to bang it with a hammer. Took me some good time and a cut up chest from laying across the top of the motor. If your going that far too, get the different pedestal and the better o-rings.

The turbine clamp comes off easily with a liberal spraying of PB Blaster, heck sometimes it evens pops off on it's own after a few minutes!
