    Only took 4 stitches to close the hole.
    Yup...I remember, and I've done the same thing whacking around on other stuff.

    I attribute a large part of my dain brammage to said events.

    Congrats on the Goat...It is amazing how no one can walk by one, they just have to stop and stare. Everyone at the VFW knows I call mine my " Big Bottom Girl" because of all the money she takes me for but I love her.
    Nothing drives like a Goat.

    Goat drums should come off eaisely after the center bolt and outer bolts are removed. There are bolts for removing the drum, insert them evenly on each side. If it balks, back off on the brake shoe adjustment. If the brake shoes clear it will come off nicely. Be real sure , once the drum is off, to remove the bolts, or just back them off. These brake drums are not available at you local parts place. When you replace the drum use the center bolt to pull the axle into the splines, once you have the outer bolts lined up for their respective holes. If this isn't done the splines and the drum can be rendered toast..

    If you need a parts vehicle there is one coming up on an unammed gooberment sales site at a location not too far from you. Might want to do a search for "gamma goat".

    As I understand it you have to break it down to it's basic components in order to get it out the gate but as they say......"parts is parts".
    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    After you get the rear drums off, you can seperate the carriers brake system from the tractor by disconnecting the so called "quick disconnect" on the RH side of where the carrier meets the tractor. You will then need to get the brakes working on the tractor.
    It is not wise to drive the goat tractor on the highway without the carrier. It will get kinda wild.
