Re: stock 7.3 turbo needs rebuilt?
If it moves back and fourth that means the thrust bearing/collar assembly is shot. Normally when i tear down a turbo with in and out play, the compressor seal plate is worn, the bearing housing on the exhaust side is worn. Tops its worth $65-70. I wont pay more than $150.00 for a good rebuildable core, with no major damaged parts.
