First thing that comes to my mind of course is slipage of some sort, but it looks as though you have your i's dotted and t's crossed as far as that goes. Have someone lift the backend and operate the self propell while you take a closer look at the drive mechanism. Hold the drive wheels with your hand and see how much resistence it has and if possible, where the slipping is happening. From what you described, it would seem likely that the transmission is shot, but I would reccommend that you take it to a lawnmower shop and see what they can find. I know it could be costly, but they could at least daignose your problem easier.:)
