I checked eReplacements.com, and brought up the exploded diagram.
No belt.
I’d guess your blade flange washers are glazed, or the blade nut is just not tight enough.

If you were stalling the actual motor, I’d think you’d be popping breakers.

I hope you’ve figured this out by now, but in case you haven’t, there is a belt on these saws. It’s a very short serpentine style belt that connects the blade arbor and the motor pulley. You have to remove the front cover, then take the three screws out of the blade arbor assembly to change the belt. There is no tensioner either, it’s tensioned by the distance and belt length. I did the same thing on mine not too long after I got it and had Delta send me a new belt, then I replaced it myself. It’s really not too bad of a job at all. Just don’t break the small bolts!!!

Any chance you can post pics?? I know this is an old thread but I’m having a rough time getting to the belt?

I think I’m on the right path – but would love some clarifications – did you remove motor? From table? If not- does the blade cradle have to come off first??

Never mind…. i aggressively figured it out… Gonna make a how (not) to get to the belt in a delta 36-725….

Think my saw blade is slow because of this????

Still have to measure the belt and possibly replace —

And here’s some carnage from a stripped screw on the blade crib-

Down toward the bottom of this thread the proper replacement belt is discussed… was about a $12 fix. Originally the PO thought it was the capacitors.

Cheers,

Sorry tried to answer from my phone and got blocked. Looks like you are on the right path now. i have some of the same issues with the blade guard, no good solution for that one. When you put the belt back on it will be tight, work both ends at the same time best you can. Clean up and check bearings while you are there.
