I just installed a new belt that my sled calls for, and it is a little wider than my other one. It is level with the top of the driven clutch. It seem to drag when sitting at an idle, and then my sled will stall. Should I shim the driven clutch so the belt is an 1/8" inside the top of the driven clutch? Both belts numbers are for my sled. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.[:)]

Don't go by how much the belt sticks out of the clutch. You have to adjust the belt deflection.
It should have an inch and a half movement up and down when the engine is stopped.
You need to shim the secondary until you have that amount of belt deflection.
