clocking a turbo help

sup guys..im trying to clock my turbo...i followed all instructions on loosening the 6 bolts on both sides, but now it just wont turn...doesnt budge at all and all bolts are definitely loosened enough.....the turbo is on right now and id rather leave it on, but i may have no choice to remove it and try clocking it then....

but any suggestions on making this damn thing turn....anyone run into a similar problem?

Re: clocking a turbo help

if its a used turbo with some rust, the compressor plates are prolly somewhat rusted to the housings, so you'll need to use a bit of force to loosen it.
are you trying to clock the compressor, turbine, or both?

it really is as simple as loosen the 6/12 bolts, rotate the housing(s) to where needed, tighten. there's no tricks. just use a bit of muscle.


also i had no idea you were goin boost, you sneaky bastard!

Re: clocking a turbo help

IIRC, those 8 bolts that hold the center cartridge to the compressor and turbine plates need to be COMPLETELY removed, then the center can only be rotated in 90* increments, due to there being only 4 bolts.
then once the center is vertical, once the 12 bolts holding the housings are loosened, you can rotate the housings in finite increments.

Re: clocking a turbo help

yezzzirrr. you need to COMPLETELY remove them in order to rotate the housings relative to the center cartridge.

i didn't have to remove those 4 bolts when i clocked both compressor and turbine housings, just loosened the bolts around the edge of the housings .. those 4 bolts closer to the center are only removed when doing a turbo rebuild because that will give you access to turbo internals/bearings.

Re: clocking a turbo help

well in that pic he shows the turbo being bolted up to the manifold and the intercooler piping .. how would the housings move if they have piping attached to them ? .. unless i misread somewhere or unless you're trying to rotate the center section only - in which case, I wouldn't recommend hitting it with anything .. just take the turbo out and then rotate everything to appropriate angles.

Re: clocking a turbo help

yea he just wants to do the center section. which i could see being a PITA when bolted to the car, cuz now your fighting the resistance/friction against both the compressor and turbine housings. whereas if it wasn't bolted to the car, you could do one housing at a time.

Re: clocking a turbo help

nick - some people said not to remove those 4 bolts im pointin to n to tighten them right back up

n yea im trying to rotate just the center portion...i even tried disconnecting both oil lines and the boost pipe and absolutely no change....looking at it, it should turn unless something else is holding it and it doesnt look to be because its connected to everything else...but maybe im missing something so i guess im just gunna hafta remove the damn thing :-/
