I have a question about your 88. Does it say it's an 88 on the side or 85. I have never seen one that was badged an 88. By all my research my 85 should be an 88 but it says it's an 85

The sheet metal says 88 and there is no 3pt hitch. I have a 88 diesel with a blown crank I bought for parts as well. There is the odd one around I see once in a while but I am "in the west" in Manitoba, Canada so maybe that makes sense. Rst

I have an 85 and I've seen a few 88's. The 88 was the western or standard version of the 85. The 88 had cast wheels, fixed front axle, wheatland fenders and no 3 point hitch. The 85 had steel rims, adjustable front axle, row crop fenders and 3 point.

Do you have a picture of your 85? Also does the serial number tag say 85 or 88?

JJL what your saying makes more sense to me. That the 88 is a standard/wheatland/western version of the 85.

I read something that said the 88 was a diesel version of the 85 but I knew that wasn't true. Being in Mich I can see why I have never seen a 88.

My 85 has spin out rear wheels, adjustable front axle, 3pt, 18.4x30 rears, clam shell fenders, and a pto.

I have seen pics of 85's with an aluminum strip under the hood (mine has it) and pics with out the strip.

Diesels had the chrome strip, gas models did not.
