I have a walker and greased everything up and everything worked fine. But now the right hand hydro doesnt want to work. Maybe a bad pump but am wondering if there is anything else I could look at first.

Walker hydros don't just quit working, they start slipping first. Check your hydro dump lever, belt tennisoner, jack shaft tennisoner spring. You must have hit something when greasing the unit to have it stop working.

I recently had a similar thing happen and the key between the wheel hub and the hydro sheared. The hydro was turning the shaft, but it was spinning inside the wheel hub. This is not likely the problem, but it could be. This is not very common according to my mechanic.

Check the spring and the belt. The first sign of one of these failing is the right hydro as the belt only contacts 1/2 of the pulley vs. almost all of the left pulley.
