Default bought a 14b, missing shaft nut

So I just received the 14b turbo for my initial boost setup, and it appears ot be missing the shaft nut. I have a shaft nut from a torn up 16g, but will using that put the turbo too far out of balance? Thanks guys

Yeah, definitely. I e-mailed the seller; we'll see what he says. It spins nicely, and very minimal shaft play. Blades all look good, no sign of contacting the housing.

Make sure that the 14b has a left handed thread like the 16g i was confused why mine, was so hard to get off at first then duh. Also make sure they didn't wango the wheels on the shafts while trying to press the assembly together my larger than stock oring proved to thick and now in leu of trying to get new baldes+ shaft + rebuild kit i'm gonna buy a new 16g and be done with it.
who knows i might go evo3 :gay:
