Surely, this is not a picture of Larry's 60k mile turbo engine?? Say it isn't so!

Any idea what caused this to happen? Timing belt?

We haven't heard from Larry the Isuzu Guy yet for the rest of the story. What happened Larry? Jerry

I wish I knew but I bought it this way. The timing belt was good and had all the service records that were done on time. The Old Man that I bought from said that it just stopped running. DUH :roll:

My trooper has a N/A block which I have driven 60K + without a problem you might consider that as an option.

What is the condition of the seals in the turbo?

The turbo looks like new, the cover for it is perfect no cracks and no discoloring. The motor only has 59000 on it. The only thing I can think the Old Man did was most likely was lug the motor.
