Hi guys

I am new to this list and new to turbocharging anything so bare with me if
my question are dumb or have already been covered before. I own a 1978
Kawasaki LTD 1000. I have a turbo off
of a 1984 Chrysler Laser 2.2 liter 4 cylinder. The turbo is a AiResearch
m10 with a AR of .48. I have made my own header, intercooler,intake,pop off
valve, and priority valve. I work at a welding, fabrication, machine shop.
My questions are where do you guys get the one way check
valves that go in the oil lines, I can't locate any. Can the average person
put new seals 
and bearings in a turbo? If so any idea where to obtian the parts? How can
a person tell if 
the turbo is spinning up to speed?( I think mine needs rebuilt ) I am also
trying to find a
"dial a boost control" like the one shown in Joe Halie's book. My turbo has
the waste gate on
it that came on the Laser and opens at 7 psi. Any help and tips would be

Thanks Jeff
