Banks Turbo Rebuilding

do you guys know of any kits for rebuilding the banks turbos?

i have one that has a small amount of shaft play and it leaks oil around the inlet housing pretty bad.

motor was redone so and i bought the turbo kit used so i thought i would go though and re-do it also.

i bumped the inlet housing when i had it off and the little bearing fell out along with the bronze retainer. i'm not sure if there is anything else that is suppose to go there also???

i took some pics and i'll upload them tomorrow after work to give you guys an idea of what piece i'm talking about.

if anyone has a pic of their turbo tore down and could post it or link that would be great.

the turbo is most the way tore down. there was a small snap ring i could not get out tonight and i have to get some more tools but it's coming along.

the shaft looked pretty good, just acts like bearings and seals need replaced.

is there any other types of compressor wheels aftermarket that offer different sound or any type of performance benefits for these?

is there a compatible garret turbo that a rebuild kit would also work on this turbo?
appreciate the input

I believe it's a Garrett turbo so parts should be easily obtainable. The hard part is figuring out which one it is because banks doesnt put a name on them.

unfortunately i don't. I'm in the process if searching for a rebuild kit for the 6.9 IDI Hypermax turbo my buddy found. It says Garrett on the tag at the very bottom.

That one needs a seal kit mainly. No play, but it pours oil into the exhaust side and probably the intake side. We ran it with the downpipe off and could watch the oil drip out.

t3-t4 is a garrett hybrid thing... its a t-3 exhaust housing with a t-4 sized cold side i think... i always thought that the banks turbos were roto-master or mitsus?

The Banks turbo is a T04B i believe. The later 6.9/7.3 gated ones were Mitsus(TE06H to be exact). Not sure on the roto-masters however.

I first though the "B" in T04B was for "Banks" but i doubt it. My Banks charger has "BANKS" in raised letters in the cold size housing casting, so it's definitely a purpose built charger.

T04 would describe the manifold it's designed to fit though.

I had an un-used gasket from Heath for the turbo flange on the exhaust manifold for a 6.5. It does fit on the banks manifold just fine but the opening for the exhaust is larger on the banks manifold over the 6.5 manifold gasket.

When i noticed this it went back into the package for future use.
