Hello Samurai! The spin is slow and the belt stinks. The belt is new. I sanded the mirror finish off the drive pulley, no improvement. The drive pulley roll pin appears to be intact. The motor appears to run at 1725 RPM when the belt is off. The idler(tension) pulley is new-the tension spring is not. The drum can be spun easily by hand from turning the gearcase below the drum. The clutch is functioning properly, slips one way, grabs tight the other way. Any ideas from the Guru? Thanks.

Sounds like either the belt is installed incorrectly or the idler pulley spring is bad.  Everything points to insufficient tension on the belt.
