Just brought home a beautiful barn find 98J that was stored inside for the past 5 years, salt rails at 90%, nice steel cab, great original paint, serial number is 422.  I believe 98Js came out in 1968-1975.  Would someone please enlighten me?

Unless your new tractor is camera shy, please feel free to share some photos please. I own 98J492, 759 and 1477 off the top of my head. All ag machines. Great tractors. JM

Here is a pick of the one I bought recently, it is z98J997. Would love to know what the z means on some of these 98J’s.

Nice! I have a "Z" tractor here as well. I have asked, but apparently we have stumped the folks in CAT land. I have even asked my well seasoned mechanic friends that bleed yellow paint, and they have no idea either. I shall keep asking around. BTW, I am in Northern California (Sutter County). I will take note of any others around here that carry the Z stamp.
Someone has to know! I hope it is not more than someone's idea of a twisted joke! JM

Maybe a tractor sold by Ziegler, they may have identified their sales by adding the Z
