broke motor mount wich causes misalignment of the clutches and will break the belt.

check the front motor mount like these guys say,but if the mounts are good than i would remove,clean and inspect the drive clutch for wear and sticking.also do the same to the driven clutch,sometimes after a belt breakage parts of the belt gets stuck inside the clutches making then stick or not completely enguage.
