I changed the original bull gear in Feb of 2009. I didn't even get 600,000 out of it. That stinks. Original had 808,xxx on it.

Has anybody had similar, short lived gears?

      A bad crankshaft damper can also shorten the life of the bull gear. Those of you who have over 500,000 on your Series 60 and haven't replaced the crankshaft damper, you better think twice, that new damper will eliminate the torsional vibrations from eating away at the bearings in the Bull Gear.
