Craftsman Snow blower

Hi my snow blower is a Craftsman C950-52461-1 9.5 hp 29 inch. I bought it second hand and it work great, except this:
Often it stop moving, forward and backward, then I simply lift the wheels off the ground and they turn again, sometime I do it a few times and it start moving again. I changed the friction disc , clean everything on both the friction disc and the plate. What could be the problem. I assume if it was adjustment cable it wouldn't just move then stop then start again. it's very odd.

Any help would be appreciate. I know it's a old model, I read a few old thread about it.

Bring up the parts list and see if there's a shear pin in the drive system.

When you squeeze the drive control you are pulling the drive wheel into the friction disc. If that isn't adjusted tight enough... it will slip. A very common problem.
