The spelling error in the title is going to drive me nuts.

Anyway, a little heat got the wheel shroud off. Lots of crud and crap in there took me forever to clean up.

Started putting it back together and realized that the turbine end piston ring was completely missing from the old shaft. This is probably the reason for all the carbon crud. Of course, this is a part that isn't in the rebuild kit so I am trying to track down a new one.
