Hi guys. Just picked up a pair on conquests a couple weeks ago. I've been lurking on this site since then and decided I should just become a member. Anyways, I picked up an 86 conquest and an 87 parts car for the steal price of $750. The 86 did start but ran rough. Since I've had it, I've bled the brakes and clutch, and changed the fuel filter and put fresh gas. Now it runs good and idles smooth. Parts car is rough and did notice rot on the frame rail about under the passenger door. The engine and trans in the 86 are out of the 87 which has around 50k miles on them. Looking forward to gain a bunch of knowledge from you guys. (Having problems uploading pics from my phone. Pics will come once I figure it out lol)

Welcome!  Several members around where you are.  The passenger frame rail rot is common as that's where the AC condensation dribbles out.

Still haven't figured out the picture problem. Any advice on how to post them. It keeps saying the file is to large. Thanks

Yep. I know where your at. There is a member there named button. He seems pretty knowledgable and also a guy named fast fail. But I haven't heard much of him lately.

Sweet. I didn't realize there were a couple members in the area. I'm always up for meeting local people and possibly mini meets.
