Yes the white plastic fill/breather plug with hole is OEM & needed to vent heated (expanded) tranny air. If there is no breather the resulting pressure increase will force the lube to escape elsewhere. It also helps remove condensation.

Remove the white plastic tranny fill/breather plug and check it's packing. If the packing is missing then both water & dirt can easily get in. Another possible entry point for contaminants is a torn shifter boot. I bought a replacement from ebay seller harp2rs which didn't last long so I went Swamp Yankee Redneck on it & unscrewed the shifter knob, slid a cut-in-half plastic soda bottle over it & sealed the top w/duct tape. Looks perfect next to the vertical Vise Grip on the Mode Shift Lever  :o


Also, remove your engine air cooling shrouds & blow out any mouse nests etc, the engine needs to breathe too
I have a 1981 Belarus 420, FWA with a Leon 636 Loader. The tractor always seems to take on water in the transmission, I acquired the tractor from my grandfather recently and he alerted me to this problem as the tractor had sat for a couple years, but since owning the tractor, and purchasing it from the original owner in the late 80's he claimed that this always happened possibly due to melting snow and rain being caught by the white (plastic looking fill plug that appears to have a vent or breather hole in the plug itself. Located  on the floor of the tractor( lack of better term) If anyone can send me a picture of a correct plug for the tractor as I know many things were done over the years prior to my grandfather owning it, and most those are certainly not OEM suggested repairs, so a guy grabbing the first plug he found if it were to have a hole or not, wouldn't surprise me. Is this plug supposed to have a breather hole in it? Or does it even need one?

Thanks for your time.

What's the history?? Did it work and start slipping ? Is the 540-1000rpm selector engaged?

I want to know if you can help me with adding a message to know it?
Well anything is possible and I'm sure you could tie into the lines you mentioned. 

The preferred way  is adding some extra remote valves operated by a cable operated joy stick in the cab to run the loader.  The joy stick  more WAY MORE user friendly vs the location of the factory remote levers!!!! Then use the factory remote valves for your 3rd and 4th remote valve.  I'd think you could find a kit for $500 or less or find a tractor/machinery wreckers and buy a used one.
Just got my first Belarus an 822.  Has a loader on it and I would like to use my bale hugger with it.  Need another set of remotes to operate it.  My question is if I take the lines off the draft control for the lift arms would I be able to put quick connect ends on them and have it work?  Any foreseen problems with doing it this way?  I rarely use lift arms and could run hoses from the cylinder with ends to plug into the lines when needed.

Thanks in advance

There is lots of room in those cabs so sure if there is a will there is a way to mount any brand of seat with some modifications to mounting brackets.  I have a new seat i got from.... CIH in my old 825.  But with your back issue I'd go to a seat company that makes seats for construction/ag equipment and sit on a bunch of seats and suspension combos to find what "feels" right for you.  My back gave me grief and I changed out several seats on various pieces of equipment.  Not worth the pain and aggravation having an uncomfortable seat.
