Asking for info, please

Hello, the Express brand turbo was stolen off the 6BD1 diesel engine in my 1981 28' A.S. motorhome. Can anyone quote me a value for the insurance claim and a possible source to replace it? Thank you.

Can't help with value. Check with the two companies I have list below.
Tom's Truck Center in Santa Ana CA (800 6381015)they have been an Isuzu Dealer since the 80's and have a large stock of used parts.
Custom Turbo Rebuilding in Santa Fe Springs CA (562 9446314) have been in business for over 44 years and know turbochargers.
Maybe Tom's would have a used turbo and Custom could rebuild it for you.
Good Luck!

Are you kidding me? Someone had the balls and savy to take off the front wheel and bang every knuckle they have to remove a crappy little turbo? Wow, I think this falls under the category of "If they needed it that badly"

Shepherd57 last year replaced the original BAE Rajay turbo in his 325 TD. I would PM him for parts cost and labour hours to replace.

Mike Leary also had to replace turbo and the Garrett part number is listed in his thread.

I'm still shaking my head at this one. I hope their fingers hurt for a week.
