Ransoms Matador Mk3

Hi all, I have a Ransomes Matador 24 inch Mk3, the chain drive jumps out of the tensioner and the drive can stick.

All looks good, withe the clutch assembly, alignment etc. land roll turns ok for about half a turn if pushed forward then resistance is felt, increased pressure will cause it to roll further.

Was wondering if there were a common issue which may cause the above problem, any advise most appreciated.
