Re: Turbo's



True, they're pretty much the same. The water cooled are considered
better, as Ford discontinued selling the oil-cooled bearing models.
There is some variance with the seals/ internal parts but this easily
discovered once you've torn yours down, so that you can get the proper
service kit. Always good to check the specs on a used one for wear, do a
rebuild & get it balanced, before installing - as they can be a pain to
but in & you don't want to have to install it twice!
