This pulley is what has to change shape for unit to gain speed. It is common problem on this type drive. You can see if it is being moved when you change speed lever positions, and if it is moving and nothing is happening. The pulley needs to be replaced. Thank you.

OK, took that off and cleaned it up, now replacing both belts. If this doesn't work is there anything else I need to know?
No, if it doesn't work, the pulley is still problem and replacement would be in order.
