I've had the machine for a while and ran great. Went to do some rewiring in the shop and accidentally swapped legs so it ran the pump in reverse.

I fixed it and went to run the machine, now the ram is painfully slow and sometimes not responsive.

Is there something I can do to fix this?

I'm a dummy. While I was doing stuff, something fell underneath the pedal, limiting the travel just enough to not appear suspicious at first. Works like it should now.

Running it backwards should not hurt anything.

I spent hours trying to fix the coolant pump on my lathe.
In the end all I had to do was add more coolant! Duh!

We could probably have a few thousand of these stories if we started a thread on the subject.
