I got the Flagship puller of the Harbor Freight line and it was adequate to pull the old part

Crit, we have been so fortunate to get to a safe place AND to get the part in 12 hours on a Friday. New part installed, Tracy is on a run to the nearest town for some green loc-tight. Should be buttoned up around noon. Fingers crossed!

I’m good thanks. No torque wrench on hand so I’ll tighten it OMG tight with locktite and can go back to it once in Charleston.

That was a great show of team work and WOG community!

When the dust settles and you are back on the road, could you share part numbers and cost?

If the harmonic balancer has become a maintenance item, we should all be taking a close look at ours and consider changing it in advance. A failed harmonic balancer can ruin an engine, I know that much.

I can't even remember what I did and Randy scolded me, 'why didn't I ask the WOG ?'. he said I had no idea what the WOG can do. I'm a convert. People see my coach and as soon as they get in they go WOW. Then they ask how, with the company gone, how do I get support. I tell them I have the WOG. Hundreds of owners around the country (world) that I can reach out to in seconds (for help) with my phone. It's awesome. Thanks Randy for all you do. I will do what I can to help. I won't be roaming till October so hopefully I can help someone and not have to ask. I try to run a tight ship, but this it the biggest, most complicated machine I have ever seen. Love it. I also have picked up AAA, Good Sams deluxe and FMCA road side assist. I am planning on loading all my tools and carry enough fluids (and spares) for most anything. Just got to watch the weight.
