How do you get the bolt out that is between the turbine housings? The one that connects to the uppipes. I have spent the last 2 hours trying to get at that bolt so I can switch out my turbo. There isn't any room to stick anything in there. I can get a 15mm wrench in but there is no room to twist it. Tried a universal but there isn't enough room to get a clean contact with the bolt...
if you are talking about the two on the flange then is used a 15mm short wrench... to break it loose I used a cheater wrench to help its a pain lots of pb blaster and you should get it... it takes time and a lot of wrench twisting and you get about a half a turn maby each time

well it looks like a trip to the hardware store then for a short wrench... thanks
More tools yaaay....what I did was head to sears and get a set of stubby gear wrenches. One end is like a box end but has a ratcheting mechanism other end of wrench is standard open end. They are awesome for tight quarters and the ratchet mechanism eliminates having to reset the wrench.
I think Swamp's Diesel site has a write up on turbo removal install which is good iirc. Think it was them that suggested using an elastic band to hold up the rear pedistal bolts on install. Also to use a piece of plastic (like a chunk of clean oil jug) to sandwich between pedistal and block o-rings to keep in place while centering pedistal on install. This will keep those pesky o-rings in place until you get pedistal bolts started then you just gently slide out the plastic.
