2003 Murray Riding Mower won't start


I put another engine on a 2003 Murray 16.5 HP. The engine started fine without the drive belt on. It idle just like a new one. As soon as I put the drive belt back on it may make one full turn and then stop sometimes it will make one full turn and the try to move again but won't do anything. I turn the key off and wait about a minute and it will do the full turn again but if I try to start it immediately after it won't do anything I have to wait about a minute. Anyone know what is going on or how to fix it.

Is the drive clutch engaged? If the engine is just at idle, it might not be able to carry the load (my JD will stall if I engage the pto at idle).
