I doubt there is any problem with the crankshaft bearing. I think you'll find that your new belt is burning. Check for proper routing, belt rubbing, seized pulleys, etc...

make sure you did not put the belt over the brake. I have seen so many snowblower come in my shop where the owner replaced his belt and not knowing there is a brake, just installed the belt in the bottom half of the pulley and pulled it up to the upper pulley. With the brake being on the side of the pulley, the belt went over the brake instead of under the brake.
