What is the end play dimension and tolerance for a PTE 106 turbo?
Thanks bud!! I appreciate it. It's a journal bearing turbo and has .008" of end play.Monty it should have basically zero thrust end play. If its ball bearing it should have zero axial movement. Journal bearing is roughly .020" - .025" at the base of the compressor wheel closest to the bearing(bushing) this will obviously increase depending on how far out you are measuring on compressor shaft. If it touches down on the housing when you push in that direction I would definitely send it in. If there is thrust end play I would send it in also. If you still have doubts I would call Precision. Hope this helps.
I just assembled it using oil. Checked it after and it had .008" end play. Compressor does not touch off on the housing so I think I am safe. I started the car today and the turbo still seems to be fine.Have you run oil through it yet? Seems like the big girls tighten up a little with oil. They usually have a little more end play than your smaller stuff.
