Auger Keeps Moving

I had posted this in the generals forum but I guess I should post it here.

The problem is my auger keeps moving even after I release the auger handle. Someone suggested that I look at the belt and pulley. Not sure what I should be looking for. Here are some pictures.

The very first thing that I would look for is to make sure that the tensioner pulley is retracting when the lever is released.
Next, if it has an auger brake, make sure that it is working properly.

looking at the second and third pic, the tension pulley for the auger needs to be able to move away from the belt another 1/4 or 3/8 inch, just to where the notch barely touches the body, if nothing is stuck, the cable is just out of tight. jmo
