    T3 rebuild in progress...Asking for knowledge

    I have a TB03 (same as T3) off of a early 80's Dodge and I am rebuilding it. I bought the wrong kit!!! Now the bearings are larger on the inside so the shaft just moves from side to side. I bought the right kit and now I need help getting everything where it needs to go. Does anyone out there have a rebuild guide with pictures so I can tell what goes where in the compressor housing and backplate? I know the basics about it and have it all rebuilt but now I just need to know what goes where once I get to the thrust bearing and where the turbine shaft enters the back seal plate for the compressor housing. I keep getting oil in my intake!!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks again!

          Well, what I need to know is in what order do I need to assemble my turbo? I have the rear oil seal (piston ring type seal) in, I have the bearings and split rings in, I have the shaft locked in, and I have the thrust bearing and thrust plate in place. There is a sleeve left that goes down onto the turbine shaft, underneath the compressor wheel, and sits down in the compressor backplate. I don't know if this is a spacer or what. The back of the compressor plate has the star shaped washer and the little plastic piece in it. Can anyone think of any other parts I may be missing here and where it goes? Also, I can't get my shaft nut to stay tight. If I torque it down to specs, it binds the shaft. But when I loosen it just a little bit, it is too loose and the shaft spins smooth as hell.
