Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. I will need to ask you some troubleshooting questions as we go.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Have you checked your bypass/roll lever? Did our problem occur suddenly, or gradually, over a period of time? Is your right hand drive working properly?

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Here is a list of things to check:

  • First check the condition of your drive belt. If your belt is loose or worn, it could be slipping. A slipping drive belt can have more affect on one pump, than on the other.
  • Check for obvious oil leaks on your left side pump, and your left side wheel motor, and all fittings associated with your left side drive.
  • Remove your drive belt, then spin the pulley on your left side pump. Watch and listen for excess play in the input shaft that your pulley attaches to.
  • Check to see if your left side wheel will roll freely, when the bypass on your pump, is in drive position.
