I haven't looked into it yet, but wouldn't I need to pull it to check and/or replace the thrust plate?

Have to pull the front cover, but you can sneak the retainer in there without pulling it I believe. Been a minute since I was in there.

Sneak one in you say? I'll have to pull the cover and look. I just sealed that up and expected to have in the truck this weekend, oh well.

J-pipe: Good find, looks like a marine cam with a bolt on gear... I messaged Snedge on the parts necessary to make it work and of course a thrust plate. I'm not sure of Marine cam gains or benefits. Although I will say the core looks much beefier than a stock 12v cam.

Was going through some pictures of my progress this morning and saw this:

Seems a steel thrust plate is definitely in place. My gut told me I tightened those bolts up and it was steel. Now I am really confused. Maybe old damage that they didn't pull the pan to retrieve the remains?

I'm leaning towards throwing the pan on and letting it eat.

I found what parts were in the pan. It seemed too thin for a cam plate, but couldn't find anything that resembled the pieces until now. Looks like the older design turbo thrust.

The pickup screen and oil filter hopefully caught most of it, so I think it's time to install 60lb springs, seal up the oil pan and throw it in the truck. The oil pan has some small dents and dings, but I don't see that causing any functional issues. Any other tips before it goes in?

Back at it again after a busy period at work.

Valve seals: The springs are going to be replaced, I figure valve seals would be a good idea seeing how the rest of the seals/rubber stuff was brittle on the motor. I think I have the old style not the top hat. Tips on replacing them? I know small block chevy seals are easy to destroy if you are careless installing them.

It looks like a HX35/40-12cm is going to get this thing off the ground. Fashionable and sexy... probably not, but room for growth later, yes. On the topic of growth, maybe just for conversation sake, what turbo would be a good one to hang under a hybrid? I see a lot of people using HX52 and HX55 holsets for small quick setups. I have a friend with a few of these laying around. I have also read good things about small S400 and big S300 turbos. Then there is the K31, which seems like a decent cost effective option with good size wheels and even an internal waste gate. I found that interesting because it seems like you could tune it more easily and not have to worry about external gates with springs and such. Also it seems like you could limit or raise the power level. Anyways, just thinking out loud.
