Thanks for that info, Haymaker ...

Calling the US Belarus folks to see what their list of parts/costs are, and will then compare that to getting some of these things rebuilt/machined locally (where local is a 100 or so miles away from me).

Haymaker and others have suggested these ancillary tasks:
- inspect/machine/replace clutch disc, pressure plate, flywheel
- rear main seal
- clean off leaky stuff, and inspect anything else visible/accessible while tractor is split
Anything obvious missing above?

On splitting the tractor & doing just clutch work (trying to determine hours, not necessarily exact cost, although my wallet wants to know a ballpark # before it will open for me), I'm getting only a hit or two, like 6  - 8 hours ... does that sound reasonable to split & replace clutch (assuming nothing else found needing)?

Thanks for your time, folks! My 10k # baby will be back to playing in the dirt soon!

If you're far away from a repair shop it might be just as easy to order the parts you need from MTZ and have them shopped to your place.  As I mentioned there is nothing special about the clutch. It's just a basic single disc dry clutch. Any tractor repair / heavy equpment shop could do it.

It's has a basic dry clutch that your can purchase. Ideally you should machine the flywheel too.  The last time I did mine I took the clutch disc, pressure plate and flywheel to my local clutch rebuild shop.  They machines  the parts and made me a new friction disc for far less than buying  one from the dealer.   As for price that would be a local thing. Call around and see.

Belarus 825 - needs a new clutch - any idea of rough cost to repair?
« Reply #1 on: May 23, 2017, 06:05:02 PM »
Looks like my 1996 Belarus 825 (purchased used in 2011) with a D-243 diesel can't take any more abuse from me, and is holding out for a new clutch; we pulled what looks like clutch material out it. It won't roll backward, and barely goes forward ...

Might anyone have a ballpark cost number for a local tractor shop to split this tractor and get a new clutch plate in it? If I do it, it'll squash me like a bug ...
