    How does one tell a difference between a hydro pump failure or wheel motor failure? I have a great dane super surfer that has been sitting most of the season due to the right side wheel will not move in reverse at all and forward is weaker than usual.

    I don't want to replace one finding it was the other and have 1K tied up in hydro parts!

    I just had to replace a hydro pump for the exact same reason. I think that if the wheel motor was out it would not move at all.
