It's done by sheer leverage (screwdriver) if your machine does not have a tensioner.

Motor & belt turn, but the needle stops when it encounters normal cloth. Drive belt is NOT broken & the machine has hardly been used. Sews OK when turning the wheel by hand.

the drive belt is normally a cog type belt inside the head of the machine
I would be looking in that area and at the belt or at the tension of that belt
may be a service technician would be able to correctly adjust and fix the problem

Bottom cog on front of engine has come off and the belt is loose

I would suggest that you ask the question again but be exact in your description of the problem
the cog is behind the harmonic pulley and either drives a chain, another cog or a timing belt
the cog ( what you may be referring to is the harmonic balancer pulley and that drives the fan. alternator which would equate to a loose belt because the pulley has separated from the pulley hub
A clear photo would be a big help

Viking mb555 pro mower self propulsion slow

If the drive mechanism is not worn... either belt or direct drive, increase the rpm by turning the carburetor adjustment screw. If the belt is slipping, get a new one. If the direct drive teeth are worn or missing cogs, replace the faulty parts. Belts often become slick on the side that contacts the shaft... try turning the belt inside out to get a fresh gripping surface.
