Hello. My name is***** will be assisting you with your question. Does your transaxle work as it should on level grounds? Double check to make sure that your new drive belt is tight enough, and is not slipping. Check your engine pulley for wear on the running surface, inside the v of your upper pulley. If this pulley is worn, your belt will go deeper into the pulley, and can slip under load. Also check your bypass/roll lever to make sure it is fully releasing. Check for a build up of dirt or debris on top of your transaxle. We can continue from here. Thanks!
