Depending on what was done for the repair of the turbine, most repairs I have seen on the k27 turbine shafts create an out of alignment in the shaft. This can also be through the fusion weld that welds the turbine vane head to the turbine shaft not always visible until temperature is applied during operation. This is also why I replaced your turbine shaft and did not attempt a repair. I would look at replacing the turbine shaft with a genuine new unit and VSR balancing the unit.
Hi Alan,

I spoke to the rebuilder yesterday and asked about the turbine and they assured me it was replaced and it is in one piece, shaft and turbine wheel, from Borg Warner. Their feeling was it was very unlikely that it was not true as it works as it should when VSR tested.

Thanks again mate.
