Build


Right Turbo Housing

Step 01

Fit the Seal Cap F to this location on the Right Compressor Housing, as shown:

Secure the Seal Cap F into place with one (1) MM screw.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 02

Fit the Right Turbine Valve to this location on the Right Compressor Housing as shown, and secure it into place with two (2) MM screws:

Step 03

Fit the keyed post of the Right Compressor Case down into the matching hole at this location of the Right Compressor Housing, as shown:

Secure the Right Compressor Case into place from the other side with one (1) DP screw:

Step 04

Fit the keyed hole of the Right Turbine Part B fully down onto the matching post of the Right Compressor Case, as shown:

Step 05

Fit the two pins of the Right Turbine Housing into the matching holes of the Right Turbine B, as shown:

Secure these parts together with one (1) GP screw, as shown:

Step 06

Press the post of the Right Turbo Wheel down into the hole where we just installed the previous screw, as shown.

As I did on the other turbo, I painted this Right Turbo Wheel with my 1mm Liquid Chrome pen to give it a more machined metal appearance:

Step 07

Press the pin of the Right Turbine Valve Rod A into this hole of the Right Turbine Housing, as shown.

To give this part some more color, I touched the dot with my Metallic Silver Sharpie:

Step 08

Press the keyed holes of the three Right Turbine Part A pieces onto the matching posts of the Right Turbine Housing.

The Right Turbine Part A pieces are marked ‘1’, ‘2’, and ‘3’. These are to be placed to match the numbers embossed on the bottom of the Right Turbine Housing, as shown:

Secure these Right Turbine Part A pieces into place with three (3) IM screws, one for each:

Step 09

Slide the thin pin of the Right Turbine Valve Rod B into the tiny hole at the back of the Right Turbine Valve (arrow below). At the same time, slide the thick pin of the Right Turbine Valve Rod B into the matching hole of the Right Turbine Housing, as shown.

This is just a press-fit connection. As I did with my previous Valve Rod A, I painted the ‘hinge pins’ of this Valve Rod B with my Metallic Silver Sharpie:

Step 10

Push the Seal Cap E into the opening of Seal Cap F that we installed back in Step 01:

Thoughts


I like that we are able to build the waste gate assembly and see more of the turbo system on this side of the engine!
