I know these mowers very well - do a couple of things, check to make sure that all of your engine mounting bolts are tight - otherwise this will cause the belts and engine to shift around during operation and slip/howl. Also - re-check ALL of the belt guides (especially the ones in the back of the powerdeck - there are 2 here that guide the pulley around the crankshaft - these often break and are missing and will cause adjustments to be impossible to make correctly) there should be 4 guides total on this belt and one additional that runs around the PTO engagement pulley too. Finally make sure the blade brake band is adjusted correctly - this rod runs from your PTO engagement crank arm over to the pulley on the right side of the mower. If the blade brake is not adjusted correctly this too will present engagement probs - good luck.
