Torque converter engaged when trying to start

I just put a new predator 224 with a new 30 series torque converter on my warrior 200. When I pull the rope the converter is engaged. If I pull on the belt it will free up and I cam start it but if I sit idling it will engage and kill the motor. Any ideas on what to do?
Something is wrong with your converter install. Can you post a picture. Belt should be free on the driver and the bronze bush should let it slip freely. Did you put the belt on correctly with the angled side out?
