Right side pump??? 2000 Lazer hp 23 hp kohler, recently serviced and had the dampers for the pumps changed. I purchased it used so my question is when I pull the handles back the right handle bottoms out before the left and I have a lack of power on the right side expecially in reverse and on an incline.....could this have been a band-aid issue. maybe because the damper was shot the previous owner adjusted the arm. And now that the damper is good I have an issue, also is this a fairly quick fix....I can see the arm that I need to adjust I just want to make sure I'm not going to damage the pump.

Just adjust it until it's right. Have you ever tried mowing with both dampers off? For me it's better. Less strain on the arms. You will get used to it after a couple of hours.

Can you post the serial number off this unit so I can take a look at the linkage set-up ?

Sounds like the shop you had put the dampener's on half azz-ed the job by not properly tracking the unit before calling it a day....
