    Default My new to me Gama Goat

    Well I guess I can shed some light as to what happened to mkcoen's other Goat here in NC......

    Long story short,it never left,I ended up buying it from him.

    I have been working on it for the last couple weeks,so far I have gotten the bearings repacked in all 6 wheels,greased the entire chassis,changed the oil,plus all 3 filters(oil and fuel),and rebuilt all 6 wheel cylinders and master cylinder.

    Here's a short video of the current progress,I'll post pics shortly.

    What an interesting yard. I like the other vehicles. Great pictures, nice video. A well worthy purchase. And that goat looks to be in good complete orriginal condition. You certainly are getting stuck into the nitty gritty of the servicing and repairs. Seems A good not too difficult restoration project. We look forward to seeing the ongoing story with pictures.

    Glad it turned out to be as complete as it is. Did I forget to mention the mirrors, arms, and rifle rack didn't go with that one? You can just put them in the mail at your convenience.

    That's mean. When warmer weather returns, I will see how the 4000 psi pressure washer attacks paint. The yellow will be removed one way or another.

    But the real issue is brake hoses.

    I dunno,I would say the yellow one definetly had the better body,plus had all 4 seat cushions and a tailgate,plus it started and drove up on the trailer.

    The tires were a toss up,the yellow one had more tread,but also more weather cracking.

    The bracket on the dash is the defroster for the personel heater.

    +1 on the brake hoses,this Goat needs just about every brake hose replaced,the quick disconnect for the trailer is stuck shut,without hope of fixing it,I have it removed and straight piped at the moment.

    Mine was easier to start but I think Brandon's was more complete. I think we both did pretty good considering.
