First of all, welcome to the family.
- The alternator is an easy one as long as the problem is really the alt and not a wiring issue.
- An oil leak can be an easy fix depending on where it is coming from.
- A front end shimmy-shake is also an easy fix if you attack the problem(probably a bad tire/tire balance issue) and don't try to bandaid it with a bigger steering damper.
You need to decide what you want to do with the rig before considering what upgrades to plan. Rocks, mud, sand, all around trails... time to plan.
One thing that you, and any other new Zook owner needs to understand, is that you just paid a mere $300 for a car. That pays for a title and something that may start. Like any other vehicle purchased to only $300, plan to replace everything. And if you get lucky and some of the parts work fine then consider it a bonus.
The first Sammy I bought cost me $6K used. The bonus was that it was only a little over a year old and everything worked like new. The next only cost me $1K but it was 18 years old... Things started great but I eventually replaced almost all of its moving parts.
A Zook is like any other car. You get out of it just what you put into it. And given the right build, it will do whatever you ask of it. The fun part is the number of smiles and looks of astonishment you will get as you do it.
Welcome. Whether you know it or not, you made a great decision.
