Just tossing this one out there. My dad did a motor swap on an F-350 and gave me the turbo to use in making a gas-turbine engine, but I need the money so I'm selling it.

The engine blew head gaskets so the oil is a little goopy and the turbo is hard to spin by hand. A thorough cleaning will make it perfect.

Having comments like this in an ad for a turbo is going to scare most buyers away. Why not clean it and remove that negative stuff from the ad ?

yeah after reading that add i was like whoa, hard to spin (bad bearings due to water in oil) shaft play!???!(bad bearings) sound like needs a rebuild before it can be considered "perfect" be good to put on a junkyard SBC and run some getto oil lines and just run the piss outta it lol :)

And its a variable vein turbo, which leads to several other installation issues in anything but a 6.0L power stroke. Not just slapping that one on anything...Put it on the The dieselstop.com. With a better Ad description. Someone will pick it up over there....
