Hey I’m Jared I am currently trying to get my 86 trx 350cc 4x4 rebuilt . I found a engine but the owner told me two different years first was 89 now he’s saying 86 . He owns a local shop and wants $400 cad for the engine but I’d like to know how to tell if it’s a 86 or 89 . Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard.

 

I know the 86's I've had have had an extra vent on the crankcase that was deleted on later models. 

 

But I think that change actually occurred sometime in the 86-87 time frame, so if it's there, it's an early one.  If it's not, who knows.......

I bet Shade knows some way to distinguish the year , I think if it is an AC stator it's 86 after that they were DC stators

looking at this engine, it looks like an 1986, no later than 1987. these yrs had the crank case breather box ( black box ) attached to the crank case, just like it is in this pic.

air filter sits on top, right above the rocker box. you will need all of those parts to make it run right. you can go to partzilla, look up  1986 HONDA TRX350 FOURTRAX, and it will break it all down on what parts you need. be warned !, parts for these are mostly discontinued from honda today !. the big problem you face ?, is honda no longer sells the c.d.i.'s for these models..not even after market ricks brand sells them. so, it will be nothing but used all the way, and you must have a 1986 c.d.i. !, later years will not work for this year.

So I am not a 350D guy , but think you can't swop a 86 with a 87 up , the stator and wiring harness are different for one

Well mine all worked until it jumped it’s timing and bent the valves and threw the piston through the head cracking the head.

86-87 350 Foretrax are same (350A)

 

87 350D is another (one year only)

 

88-up 350D is yet another
