Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

To locate the correct parts I would need the complete model of the engine.

See here as an example of one parts site: http://dieselevante.biz/turbo-spare-parts/

You will get the shaft on a wheel and will want to also replace the other wheel (intake/exhaust), you may inquire into a different wheel but know there is always a trade off to some degree.

Thank you!
- Joe
