You can now see that the retaining pins have been ground down sufficiently to allow both haves of the housing to rotate independently.
Time to reinstall the "guts" and snap ring. On this application it is the inlet side we need to rotate. So, I rotate the inlet before re-installing the snap ring.
Since the outlet side needs no rotating I mark the edge where the in was with a sharpie. I then mark the opposite edger where the hole is with a sharpie. I line up the two hash marks and re-install the retaining ring.
Now all the oil and coolant lines are still at the proper position and my 68HTA is clocked enough to install with good clearance.
Make sure not to over clock the turbo as this can cause the wastegate to bind. The turbo clocks further than the wastegate.
I hope this helps someone else.
