Old Star Diamond Saw Problems

I have an old Star Diamond ST20 slab saw that I have cleaned up and would like to get working. When I tried it out, the blade penetrated a specimen about an inch and then jammed. The motor just spins. I don't know if the belts are old and limp, the motor is underpowered or there is some other mechanical problem. The power feed works smoothly and the blade doesn't appear to be dished or damaged. Any suggestions as to how to fix this beast would be welcome.
