Maintenance - Service & Repair / 8345/9345 radiator overflow
« on: December 22, 2015, 06:10:38 PM »
i have a Belarus 8345 with an upgraded motor to the D245 turbo (basically the 9345).   When the tractor heats up it forces the cool an out the overflow.  I added about a gallon to top it off when cold.  Not sure if I over filled it or something else is going on.  It didn't appear to overheat, but I didn't pug it under any load either.   I can't find the psi to do a radiator pressure test, so I tried it at 7psi.  That held without loss.   I was thinking thermostat, but seems like that is opening up as its only when it starts to heat that I lose the coolant.   Ideas?

Hi all. Not sure if this site is still active as the posts seem older.   I bought a Belarus 8345 last year for some general landscaping projects on properties I have, plus I love tractors.   I have an older small kabota 7100 with bucket and hoe(14 hp diesel).   I have a John Deere 650 compact tractor I use for mowing (diesel).  I recently bought a smaller JD 420 garden tractor (gas).   And in storage (waiting for all my free time to restore her) I have a 1950s FMC g14 mower (tubular frame).   Wow, I just realized I have too many. 

Anyhow, the Belarus is great, but appears to have been neglected of maintenance.   Still starts right up, sounds good, but seems to have blowby.   Cosmetically abused too.  The inside cab is a mess and the controls have been broke, stretched, and disconnected.  Suprisingly given all that she still does the job!   

My goal is to fix her up to at least "good" as time and weather permits (did I mention I live in Vermont).  Hoping to find a forum to bounce issues I run into along the way.
