Hi,Carl! Could you have burned out your clutches or could the fluid be really low(if it's a wet type clutch)?

It might be the dry type clutch (flywheel) in which case you will need to clean the thing first (there are some notes on here if you do a search, but basically you need to take it apart, clean everything with something that'll get any grease out (if it is a dry type clutch) and then possibly lightly sand with a very very very very fine grade sandpaper

Definately a slipping clutch or belt problem.

Check, recondition...possibly replace clutch.

Check belt for slipping, apply belt dressing,maybe replace belt.

Could you have the wrong belt on there, possibly ? the correct one has rubber "teeth" on it, as I recall.
