I'm approaching 500,000 mi on my 2000 Argosy (COE), I was going to have my dealer change out my Dampener and check the bull gear but wondered about doing it myself?? I've got a shop and I'm a oilfield valve mechanic but this is a condo unit and won't fit inside so I would have to work outside and worried about how long it would take (I don't want to leave any engine components exposed to possible contamination from weather/wind) and does the cab need to be raised for this job? Any input would be much appreciated.

Bull gear will 'flex' but should have no "play". Easy to check. I suggest rotating and checking in multiple spots. I caught mine early and I guess only parts of the race where flaking off. So sometimes there was no play. It depended on the position. When the bearing starts to come apart, there should be metal on the magnetic drain plug. At least there was on mine.

My harmonic balancer was very easy to change. Should put new bolts in. I don't know about your type of truck but checking the bull gear and changing the harmonic balancer is child's play on my truck. Don't need special tools or training.
