How to identify a Garrett turbocharger
Look for the identification name plate of the turbo.
In the T series you can usually find it on the body of the turbo or on the inlet plate, held by 2 clinches. Although in the GT series it is usually recorded by computer on the compressor housing or with a name plate held by 2 clinches.
Once you find the identification name plate there are several possibilities among:
- On the name plate there is a Garrett part number, usually directly after the p/n or part number inscription, where the turbo is already identified.
- Only the O.E.M. part number (that of the maker of the engine) appears on the name plate, this is normally the case with CATERPILLAR, DETROIT DIESEL, JOHN DEERE, PERKINS and K.H.DEUTZ, this is why we need to search for the crossing using the search of this Web site, introducing the O.E.M. part number and searching by O.E.M. part number ( it should maintain the same style with spaces, hyphens, etc...).
- In the event that the previous steps do not bring any results contact us by Fax or e-mail and we will attempt to find the part number.
