Replaced the Drive Belt, still can only get a slow speed from the mower. all happened since the breaking of thr starter. "Need Help"

What Kohler engine do you have, model wise. Starter could have broken from the flywheel moving sideways due to bad crankshaft bushing at the upper housing. But that is on the wrong end to cause a drive belt problem. Is the drive belt now tight, or is it still loose?
