Dewalt dw733 skipping

I have an older dewalt dw733 12 1/2" thickness planner it has started skipping and jerking when you send a board through it even with a super light pass. I cleaned the rollers and waxed the bed but it is still jumping and skipping. I checked the roller drive chains and sprockets they look good. I ran it with the cover off and the roller drive chains jump real bad when it skips but they are not skipping the sprockets. I was wondering if anyone else may have had this problem and what the solution might be. I am wondering if it might be a broken gear inside the motor.

If this is happening at regular intervals then my guess is a tooth has broken. It is also possible that a roll pin that locates a gear has failed, maybe slid part way out and is causing the jump. I think it will have to be taken apart to find the problem.
