Issues with a Stanley Riding Mower

I have a Stanley 17.5 hp 42"cut riding mower, purchased in 2002. Lately it has started to move slower, especially on grades, and really slow in reverse. It has a hydrostatic transmission. Are there adjustments that can be made to help this. The engine is as good as ever. I think it's the pump/differential. Does anyone know of another pump/differential out of another manufacturer's mower (murray) that might also fit it? And if so where can I get it? Thanks

I'd just change the hydrolic pump belt first, long over due if it's never been changed.

Look under it and see if you can read the label on the transmission under the back of the mower. It should have make and model. Start with checking the belt, but these trannys do fail in a similar manner.
