Mobylette starting issues

Picked up a yellow 70's (?) Motobecane Mobylette yesterday. Running an AV7. In decent shape, has spark and compression when turned by hand. I'm willing to bet it will start with a good going through.

I've gone through the procedure of turning the engine engagement switch into the correct position to engage the pedal start. I can't get the pedals to turn the engine over, though. Belt moves, but the drum the belt is attached to won't engage the engine.

Forgive my naivety when it comes to Mobys.

I've gone through the guides usually suggested, but I may need the exact issue explained to me.
