Rebuilding turbo's is best left to the professionals mate, there's alot of precise maching needed when rebuilding them. Don't let it scare you though as it doesn't cost as much as you think.

If your having one rebuild then doesn't matter what state the turbo is you start with.

where is best place to send one to get rebuilt then?

what it is, is the engine i am buying to put into my campus doesnt come with the carb or turbo and im jut looking at sourcing each of them but wasnt sure if it was worth swerving turbos that need rebulding

Turbo Developments in London mate (0208 5603927), good bunch of boys down there and can't fault them.
If you phone them up ask for Adam and say i sent you, or if you not too sure i can always sort a turbo for you as i deal with them alot.

I just rebuilt my t2 with a 360 thrust bearing and new shaft bearings etc.
I used some of the missus nail polish to mark the positions of the turbine wheel in relation to the compressor wheel, and lined it all back up on reassembly, all thats needed is very small circlip pliers
and to be careful when removing the turbine housing as you can damage the wheel.  no problems
yet at 18 psi, but time will tell.  :D
