Yes, it sounds like you need to adjust the blade brake clutch (BBC). I have a PDF service manual that explains it. If you post your email address I can upload it to you. Here's an excerpt from the manual:
BBC Adjusting the Blade Brake
1. Stop the engine. Pull the wire off the spark plug.
2. Remove the two screws securing the screen
panel to the top of the mower housing as shown
in Figure 22. Remove the panel. (The panel they're
referring to is the red screen between the motor
3. Move the control bar down and lift up against the
handle. With the control bar against the handle,
measure the spring length (L) at the front of the
spring as shown in Figure 26.
4. If the spring dimension is greater than 32 mm
(1-1/4") an adjustment is needed.
5. To adjust, loosen the bottom jam nut on the blade
brake cable as shown in Figure 27. Adjust the top
jam nut until spring dimension is as near as
possible to nut; not less than 25 mm (1") See
NOTE: Adjusting the top jam nut too high can
cause the cable end to crush the plastic fitting
when the control bar is moved up against the
handle. If the spring cannot be adjusted to less
than 32 mm (1-1/4") before the cable end
contacts the plastic fitting, the clutch belt is worn
out and should be replaced. After replacing the
belt, adjust the cable per the above procedure.
NOTE: 1990 and newer models are equipped
with finger tip adjusters that do not require tools.
Use the same adjustment criteria on these

I've noticed that when the blade get dull it work harder a cutting tall grass. I just put a new blade on mine and now it runs and sounds like a brand new mower. also if the inside of the deck is coated with old grass that makes a differance too
