Diesels would have same tires as gas for each model.

If the diesel is running, thatís a plus. Especially if starts easily both cold and hot. Hard starting when hot indicates injector pump wear. Fixing that is very expensive.

what i am wanting to know is about these waukesha engines , and how good they are. i know about the poor pump these engines have. and i am thinking the diesels have 30" rubber while the gas has 26" but anyhow its not a super and has 30" tires. this is what i want to know. i am referring to the standard model not the row crop.

My Dad bought a 88 diesel new in 1949. It did the majority of the work on our farms, and several others in the area for a lot of years. Dad did a fair bit of custom work with a Dion forage harvester behind it mostly cutting silage corn and filling silos. I believe it was the Massey dealer had a new "high horsepower" tractor out that they wanted to demo on the harvester one day, so they unhooked the 88 and put it on. I dont remember the model number, but I remember Dad saying the dealer figured it would make the Oliver look pretty sick! According to Dad the first gear they tryed it in stalled the tractor pretty much as soon as the corn hit the head. Low gear and 22 minutes later they got the wagon loaded. Dad claims he was putting load on in around 8 minutes with the 88. I dont think they sold any Masseys that day! In answer to your questions 88 diesel does have a great engine. I am not sure why you say the pumps where not good? As far as tire size I have seen both 26 and 30 inch on 88 standards so guess it was whatever option you wanted?
