6060V 6Hp compressor won't start

Our puma compressor won't start.
If we unhook the belt from the motor, then the motor runs fine.
I did replace both the capacitors(start & run) as we had no way to check them out.
The compressor seems to turn free and is full of oil and has clean filters.
When we tighten the belt and turn it on it tries to run very slowly a few revolutions then the motor gets hot and the motor breaker flips it off.
I have heard of a problem with an (unloader) valve but don't know where it is located or what replacement to order for this model.
When we "google" this model we get a listing but when we click on one there is no info on this model.
We are way out in the country with no services available.
