TP-38 Turbo Experts. Turbo damage

I have very little in and out shaft play on my turbo. Pulled and disassembled it. Looks like a bearing barely wore into the backplate. Other than that truck ran good and turbo internals look good. What would cause this? Can I reuse the backplate and get a rebuild kit and call it good? Also I have a spare center section with no play in it I was going to swap but they are different designs. One has snap rings and one has nothing. Also the shaft on one of them has a recessed section and the other doesn’t. Can someone explain that for me?

I see them on my phone. Must be a resolution issue. I’ll see if I can fix it

I can see the pics fine. I haven't done any turbo work, so I'm fairly useless in that department. Maybe try calling Ron's Turbo Service or similar? Cheers!

Keep like parts with like parts.
One is probably TP38, other is from gtp38.
I think what you are seeing is normal. That's a machined boss.
