I am planning to rebuild my 3.0 with turbo rods machined to work with my 3.0 crank and stock 3.3 P&C. Which will make it something like a 3.16L

To make the matters worse, there seems to be a lot of shaft play on the cold side... When I wiggle the shaft lateral the gap between the fan blades & housing grows from .008 to .025 thou. ( As far as I can measure with my normal feeler gauges.)

What size of gap tips of the blades supposed to have normally before I wiggle the shaft?

Is the shaft supposed to have free play in it at all? Or how much is ok for a "rebuilt" turbo???

Thank you very much gents!

P.S. Would a YouTube video help?

If there is no oil inside you will have more play... ''A specialist" told me if the propeller doesn't touch all is fine (when no oil inside)
