Steve, thank you very much, that was it!
I apparently loaded the belts on wrong. The instructions weren't very clear to me in the service manual so I was going by a video on youtube.. maybe he installed them accordingly for overseas and I didn't catch it.
The odd thing is now it doesn't rewind very well, I have to help turn it to initiate, even then it doesn't always work. Edit: Gave the gears some new lube and it seemed to help a bit. I guess I'll have to spend some more time with it to see if it gets better.
