I took my Hammerhead 150 out of a 2 year storage. Replaced the battery, new gas and a new plug and it started up pretty quick. It sputtered under acceleration but once it ran for a few minutes, it smoothed out. I ran up and down the street a couple times and when I stopped, I smelled burning rubber. No smoke. I am guessing the belt needs replacing. I have not replaced a belt yet on this thing. Any other possible ideas and what can put off that smell if its not the belt?

Thanks

I thought of that. It doesn't seem to be grabbing.
