I think we still need to know what size your wheels are
and while we're at it,
we also need to know what kind of weight has to be moved
(bike and butt)

Since we need to find out what torque requirements you have
and where that falls short.

I cannot imagine the heavier weights preventing a full rev (not at a decent gear ratio that is)
and i cannot seem to believe that your 5:1 ratio is that bad

Now, please check again the toothcount on both sprockets
what it says on the sidewall of the rear tyre
and of course what your bathroom scale says about you and the bike

Post a few pics, of the bike and TC (cover removed.. we like to see your belt and the state of the sheaves)

Jokes about german sausage are the wurst.
