Title: Device for supporting nozzle vanes of a turbocharger

Abstract

A turbocharger is described which consists of: a center housing having a radially outwardly extending annular flange at one end thereof; a turbine housing fixed to the annular flange and having an exhaust gas inflow chamber therein; a turbine wheel rotatably arranged in the turbine housing; a radially outwardly extending backplate arranged between the turbine wheel and the one end of the center housing and having an outer peripheral portion held between the annular flange and the turbine housing; an annular exhaust gas inlet passage formed between the backplate and the turbine housing and radially inwardly extending from the exhaust gas inflow chamber toward the turbine wheel; guide vanes rotatably arranged in the annular exhaust gas inlet passage, each of the guide vanes having a shaft which extends through both the backplate and the annular flange and projects beyond an exterior surface of the annular flange; axially extending bushes each being received and mounted in at least one of a first bore and a respective corresponding second bore and rotatably supporting a corresponding shaft therein; and stop means effectively based on at least one of the backplate and the annular flange, this stop means having two axially oppositely-facing shoulder meansmore » arranged for cooperating with the bushes.« less
