Is that O-ring sealing the turbo spindle cartridge where it emerges into the compressor wheel housing? No idea on the size, is the old one knackered? As for the nut, it's not left hand thread is it? Bit of a delicate one as you can't really stop the shaft rotating to remove it, maybe an airtool might shift it but you'd have to be careful the torque doesn't bend/ shear the shaft!
