2006 Prowler noise in belt housing when stopping

sometimes when I go to stop there is a whinning sound coming from the belt area and then it smells like the belt is burning. Theres was even some smoke once. Then when I start to drive again it stops. Any ideas? I is as if the belt does not stop turning when I am stopped.

I'd be opening up the clutch to see what's going on sounds like something isn't letting it return to idle position. Roller weights out of whack, clutch sheaves jammed, overly dirty

Once stopped does it actually stay stopped or keep lurching forward? idle to high?

It stays stopped and does not lurch forward. He is opening it up tonight so we will see what is in there. Our issue is we do not know how to tell if it is a bad part or not. Are there any clues to this?

If the rollers aren't round, if the sheaves aren't smooth you've got problems.

The belt should drop all the way into the primary at idle, try running it once the cover is off but DO NOT run with the primary off or you will have oil everywhere.

If it doesn't come to rest at the bottom of the primary or the top of the secondary something is jammed.

Well we opened it up and found a loose bolt that appears to be the same as the bolts on the housing but we have all of those. The belt is scarred a little and you can see where it has made some marks on the inside of the housing cover. But now we can not get the bolts off either clutch to take them off to see if there is any damage to them. Any ideas. We have tried two different air compressors and two different impact wrenches. They are on there tight.

Keep hammering on them, they should break loose.

You could also apply some controlled heat as the red loctite they use is a bitch to break loose. You don't want to get it cherry red but put a little heat to the bolt or nut and then hit it with the impact, apply a little more heat if it doesn't break and so on. Keep in mind there are seals so go easy with the heat.
