Hi, I am having similar issues but I soaked mine in heated oil before installing it. Here is a youtube video of what it does.
Is this what yours was doing?
It seems to spin freely when I don't have the belt on and it's not grabbing while pull starting it.
I think I'll try lowering the idle a bit. If that doesn't do it I will try soaking in oil again to see if it helps.
Terry, do you have any other suggestions?
