    WSUCougarx's M561 Gama Goat Acquisition and Build Thread

    Last week I had but one mission. The mission was to head down to my son's daycare to celebrate his 5th Birthday. I took these pictures right before my departure. At the last minute, I remembered I probably should remove all the weapons off the truck. The school district would have had an...

    WSUCougarx's M561 Gama Goat Acquisition and Build Thread

    Follow Up to Post #493 Here's a little follow up to my issues found in post #493. To summarize, a couple years ago, I found I had an issue with my rear tractor axle. After driving the Goat 60 miles, the Goat would make a loud audible clanking sound that could be felt after coming off a stop...

    Another M35A2 will not start

    Old post, but it helped me today. My '88 M109A3 has been sitting for 2 years. I replaced the fuel filters today and tried to start her. No smoke coming out of the stack but she was turning over. Read this post, went out and popped off the fuel shut off cover. The lever was stuck closed. Freed...

    Strange noise - but from where?

    What kind of a noise was it? Was it a metallic clanking noise?

    WSUCougarx's M561 Gama Goat Acquisition and Build Thread

    Soft Door Refurbished I've had a pile of soft Gama Goat doors sitting by my garage for a couple years now. Just one of those out of sight out of mind kind of projects. As we get closer to July 4th, my memory took me back to driving to Centralia for their July 4th festival. I shivered a good...

    Gamma Goat seat belts..

    I don't but I did post a few pics in my build thread. Maybe you can get a gestimate based on the scale of the items around the part you're looking at.

    Gama Goat Transfer Case Lube Tube View

    Maybe it’s my oil pump, but she pumps with the transfer case and tranny are in neural (video shows she’s pumping). Albeit slower than if she was in 1st gear. Quirky vehicles they are.

    Gama Goat Transfer Case Lube Tube View

    I''ve got 4 transfer cases on standby should this one go south on me. Just will need to figure out how to get it out of there. May just need to muscle it out.

    Just purchases M1123, need hauling advice.

    Outstanding! Looking forward to this project. I see reference to Coug. Capital High School Coug or WSU Coug? At any point, Go Cougs!

    WSUCougarx's M561 Gama Goat Acquisition and Build Thread

    CB mic holder re-purpose Seems like I'm forever looking for just one more part for this Goat. As you know, parts come and go. When you don't need them, they're available. When you need them, they are nowhere to be found. The little simple yet annoying to find retaining clip for the winch PTO...

    Transfer Case Oil Pump Inspection Tube A few posts back, I mentioned I had issues with a clunking/clanking around my middle axle back in JULY 2018. The issue arose only after she was warmed up AND after having been driven on the highway. Many felt it was due to possible U-Joint issues or maybe...

    Gama Goat Transfer Case Lube Tube View

    Hey guys, what have you done to make viewing your transfer case lube tube easier? Taking that doghouse off to make sure your lube pump is still primed is a pain. I did the Lucas Oil Stabilizer trick to help prevent the pump from losing prime. However, while trying to troubleshoot, I found my...
