I need to remove a 088 ATS aftermarket turbo from my 1990 7.3 idi f350 to get to the glow plug relay. I haven’t removed a turbo before and I want to know if there’s anything I should keep an eye out for or be extra careful with. Thanks in advance.
Are you replacing the relay/controller? If you are you're much better off just putting the new one somewhere else than trying to pull the turbo.
If the turbo doesn't want to come off, you may have to remove the passenger side exhaust manifold and up pipe with it. The 088 is a slip fit onto the up pipe and I've heard more often than not they'll be rusted solid together and have to be removed all together.
I am not certain, any troubleshooting advice?
wait to start light won’t turn on and I don’t hear the relay at all. Also no-start without a little bit of ether (which I’ve only used once to ease my nerves on it not running at all).What are your symptoms?
