Default axial play

1) Is 1mm axial play on a journal bearing turbo acceptable?

2) Will a rebuild fix this?

3) What else do you look for when buying a used turbo?

I would think 1mm would be too much play. A rebuild will fix a journal bearing turbo unless the housing is damaged.

Is this a dry turbo, or a turbo that has recently had oil pumping through it?

A dry turbo will easily have that much play

It's dry.

Won't a dry turbo only affect radial play. Not axial, right?
