I took mine to Diesel Fuel Injection Services in Portland two years ago. They said the cartridge was worn jn the bearing races. They ordered a new garrett cartridge section complete with impeller for me at ~$450.

I had my 2.5TD turbo rebuilt by G-Pop - IIRC it was about $400-450 delivered. It was great until I pulled the engine for a 300TDI.

EDIT: $375.00 including shipping in 2012

Still scratching my head on a couple things. Learned the glow plugs are dead and the trans needs a rebuild. This project is testing my faith as they say.

I don't understand that comment. Clay and I pulled the LT230 off the transmission this past weekend, they were shipped bolted together. Literally half of the entire length of the splines on the LT77 tailshaft are gone.

The turbo had way more radial float than it should.

Dead glowplugs are dead glowplugs and don't magically fix themselves so please expand on what you are saying here Jason.

I guess we could just put the (poorly represented IMO) $$$$ drivetrain in without consideration to the condition? And then just hope for the best?

I do want to interject here and say that if anyone has hesitated to have had a t25 turbo rebuilt because it didn't have "genuine garrett rebuild parts", it is a mistake. I'm not sure where along the line the "genuine garret parts" thing came along, but these Chinese parts have been around since 2006 and they have worked great for countless people. Unless you're buying a full-up CHRA, there's virtually no point in mentioning country of origin. It just some bronze bushings, c-clips, O-rings and seals that haven't changed in dimensions or size since the 1970's.

The prices for these rebuilds are ridiculous compared to the work required to do the rebuild.

Did you have your coffee today? Or just in a pissy mood?

"Full Pedro" as in a small project snowballs into a mountainous project....though the main difference here (which I did not explicitly state admittedly) is that this project actually NEEDED the work .

Jeez...

From Urban Dictionary:

Quote:
Full Pedro
To act 100% like Dro when it comes to Rover projects. Generally stemming from a small, necessary repair, and ending with a full frame-off restoration and/or significant repairs*.

*NOTE: may also be used to connotate any Rover project that exceeds original scope, timeline, or breadth of repairs when compared to originally planned project.

Mood is all in the mind of the reader. I just wanted to know what that meant. Does Pedro actually do "projects?"

I rebuilt mine myself first. Didn't really make any difference with play in the bushes before or after run in. Wish I had just ordered a new cartridge to begin with as my time could have been better spent on another project.

I used them for a re- build and it worked for a few weeks and then started making noise. In the end they didn't honor the warranty even after I had sent it back. I wouldn't use them again if it was me.

Thanks Billy, something to consider. When I get the lump back from UD I'll give it a look from this perspective as well.

I gave these guys a call. They have them in stock for $395, includes an O-ring needed for the install.

Rebuilding Tdi Turbo

Has anyone tried the cheaper CHRAs coming out of China that you see on ebay? I'm curious if anyone has real experience.

Rebuilding Tdi Turbo

Sorry to hijack this thread but hoping just for some clarification on my turbo.

From what I've read there will be some play in the impeller that gets stabilized when running.

Mine is full of oil on both inlet and out and seems to have more play than I would expect. Here's a video

Darn can't upload the video on tapatalk have to wait till I get home.
