But there is little to no play in turbine. in and out = no, up and down...maybe a little.
So, Recommendations for a new turbo? I cannot find the exact parts number online
I have this ja11 660cc 1991

check with a local turbo reconditioner, it may just need a new seal, as long as its not excessively worn on the shaft its relatively cheap.
