It is an 86 motor, based on the number you posted. Why would you think an 86 motor is junk? Aside from a few differences, all years are basically the same, and you can interchange most parts between all years. The 85-86 motors are short rod motors, and the 87-89 motors are long-rod motors, there are slightly different gear ratios on the 87-89 motors also.

No reason to, many just update the older motors to 88-89 specs.

they probably broke a chain and destroyed the case.i have seen it many times.then they prob. found an 86 and put it in.don't forgetit's over 20 years old.if it was rode alittle bit every year that's alot of miles!!!!there is nothing wrong with the 86 motor.check everything and ride it.if something happens to it you can get it rebuilt or buy one already rebuilt.
