You have to watch carefully as you disengage the clutch. The pulley should STOP. The pulley won't stop if the belt is touching (even slightly). Adjust the stops. Some tractors have a pulley brake. If yours does, or is supposed to, adjust or replace worn pad or lining. If yours doesn't, make one. If your transmission turns extremely easy, use the proper grade lube or replace with a heavier grade.

Hi, I agree #1 choice is the belt stops. One other question. Are you using OEM belts? Many of these belts are HA cross section and are not the same as 1/2" belts. Also, wrap and coatings are part of the total package. My 2 cents worth and its free, value accordingly. Al Eden

Check the manual for the proper lube. Manuals are available online, free. As already stated, the problem is probably the belt stops, or a non-OEM belt.
