    Does anyone know how to remove air that is in the system? My left pump is very sluggish and I think that could be air in the line. I don't know how to get it out. HELP!!

    Raise and block the rear of the unit up with tires off the ground, Start the engine then run it up about 3/4 throttle. Move the controls slowly full forward then full reverse, Do this 8 to 10 times. If air is the problem this should bleed it to the tank.
