Title: Method of assembling a variable nozzle turbocharger

Abstract

This patent describes a turbocharger having an exhaust gas driven turbine rotatably mounted to a shaft having a compressor impeller thereon, a compressor housing enclosing the compressor impeller. It also has a center housing including bearing means for rotatably supporting the shaft, and a turbine housing enclosing the turbine and forming a volute therein. A method is described of assembling the turbocharger with a spring loaded nozzle ring comprising the steps of: mounting a flange member having a central opening to the center housing; pivotably mounting vanes to the nozzle ring; sliding a tube member having a tab at each end within the central opening; indexing one of the tabs within a slot in the flange member; sliding the nozzle ring onto the tube member; indexing the other tab within a slot in the nozzle ring; simultaneously mounting the turbine housing to the flange member and biasing the nozzle ring toward the turbine housing such that the vanes are spring loaded against a portion of the turbine housing.
