(9) If the turbocharger meets the above
inspection specifications, it can be
reassembled and considered satisfactory
for further service.
(10) Install turbocharger on the engine. Refer
to TM 5-6115-400-12.
If undue impeller shaft bearing wear
or other damage is believed to have
been caused by lack of lubrication,
check the flow of oil to the
running. Minimum oil pressure at
the turbocharger is 10 psi when oil
temperature is 180F.
c. Replacement Center Housing and Rotating
When complete disassembly of the
turbocharger is not feasible, a replacement center
housing and rotating parts assembly may be used (fig.
31). When replacing this unit
it is only necessary
transfer the used turbine and compressor housings to
the new center housings and rotating parts assembly.
Follow the disassembly procedure outlined in paragraph
d. Assemble by following the instructions in paragraph f.

the Model T-1818 turbocharger can best be
accomplished with the use of service tools listed in table
