How much shaft play is allowable? Not the end to end way but the up and down.

In my turbo Buicks, I used to be able to feel a tiny bit of shaft play. When I had my cold air intake off, I did not really notice any shaft play in the turbo on my truck.

Its a silver bullet 66 I bought used with supposedly 7000-8000 miles but it has significant shaft play. Not touching the housing but close. I called industrial injection and they said that was normal for a big turbo. Supposed to allow for expansion and contraction. Now they don't know how much this one has but they figured I should run it. I don't know what do you guys think?

Dont know bud, I wonder how scored the shaft may be or it has been overheated. Its a toss up to me. Id go through it for you if you were closer.
