    That's most likely an L10 in the 88 which was the predecessor to the M11 engine. Sure you could use it to haul containers, it's run what you brung.

    88 might be an L10 not much of an engine but it could also have an 855 cummins which were real good

    I learned to really like the L-10... after I figured out how to drive an electronic engine.. I tried to drive in like the old detroit screamer I came out of.... didnt work at all.. I HATED the truck for the first week.

    I'm thinking that 88 would be a mechanical engine. I ran rail loads with a Detroit too. When I was off injured others had to drive it and they just couldn't get the hang of it, always missing gears, pulling over and coming to a stop to start over. The dam things are like shifting a dirt bike except you're in a truck, allot of extra work! Those other drivers shuttered at the thought of driving that truck. Bunch of Sissies!

    Not the 90? model that I was in. It was electronic and meant to be driven at low RPM... Detroits were driven like you're mad at them.. if you see a grade, downshift and get the RPMS up as high as they'd go! lol Do that to an L-10 (or any electronic engine) it will fall on its face..
