    New country, new Goat

    I feel your pain mate, my goat brakes aged me by about 10 years before I got them right.

    Strange noise - but from where?

    My transfer case had flogged out top bearings, the noise is constant, it doesn’t come and go.

    New country, new Goat

    Check throttle is getting full travel first, my goat topped out about 30mph, throttle rod adjustment almost doubled it's top speed.

    Fuel gauge sender

    Jeep as in M715? That would be handy, I'm about to pull the one out of my 715 to fit an aftermarket gauge.

    New country, new Goat

    I've been putting a few road miles on my goat, even with the 12 ply DUWK tyres its very comfortable and pleasant on the road, it really likes to be at about 45mph. Get yourself some Bluetooth earmuffs.

    Fuel gauge sender

    It would be nice to have a working fuel gauge in the goat. I'm guessing the sender is the likely problem, are they common to any other vehicles?

    Congrats mate, looks solid. I'm jealous of the cargo cover.

    Tires?

    I'm running the Coker 12 ply tires, ride quality is excellent, no different to the old 6 ply tires. I am running them tubeless.

    Temp Gauge

    Does anyone have an original temp gauge and sender they want to sell? Mine has an aftermarket gauge and it annoys me.

    Unless you're built like shrek, you'll need a friend to help muscle it out.

    Gama Goat Transfer Case Lube Tube View

    There are still army reconditioned transfer cases available. When I got my goat it had less than 2000 miles on it and the transfer was junk due to lack of oil, it was cheaper to replace it than work on it.

    Gama Goat Transfer Case Lube Tube View

    That was me, see attached video. If it hasn't primed in the first 50' of driving then I'll pop the transfer into neutral and idle it in first until it does. It pumps more oil idling in first than it does in higher gears or at higher revs.

    Gama Goat Swimming or Skinny Dipping

    I've only swum mine once but I certainly wouldn't have wanted a winch on the front or any sort of waves, that water is awful close. It's a very bizarre feeling. There are pecial maintenance tasks to be done after a swim too, if you skip them you'll likely end up rebuilding all your hubs.
