Snapper RER loss of speed?

my 1974 snapper has lost a lot of speed. In the 5th position it now goes about as fast as it used to in the 2nd position. I read somewhere to put a dab of oil on the drive wheel. I did that and it did not improve. My drive wheel is pretty chewed up. There is a posibility my motor is not reving as high as it used to as well.

I would replace the driven disc. It should also be absolutely clean of any foreign material, including oil. Clean the drive disc with brake keen when you install the new disc.
