but I don't have a pyrometer. I smoked about for a while, but then I got all chickenshit and turned it back. Too much snow.

Is the shaft in my turbo supposed to move other than rotate?
It's got some wobbly play when there's no oil in it.

If I start the truck up and shut it off, and then wiggle the shaft, it's toit.

You're supposed to have clearance in the bearings so the oil can get in there. If its not contacting the housings, you should be alright.

You'll be ok with a little play in the impeller shaft.
However too much play and I'd be hunting for a new turbo.
