I write with my left but do just about everything else with my right. My right side is also stronger. I don't get your issue? Just because you do one or two things with your left hand doesn't mean everything should follow suit.

I will bet you that you are doing one of these two things when you throw your right hand.
First, you are waving it, not shooting it. You can tell if you are doing this if you lift your elbow before you throw the right hand, and by which knuckles make contact when you land the punch. If you are making contact on the knuckles of the small and ring fingers, then you are swinging your right hand and it is an arm punch. Almost always.
Second, you are fouling up your footwork. Either you step with the jab and then throw the right, but don't bring up your right foot when you step, or, when you throw your left hook, you are throwing it off your front foot, not getting the weight back onto your right leg. When that happens, your hook will feel strong, but your right hand will be lacking because your weight isn't moving with the punch.

What stance am I Scrap? Thanks.

I do almost everything with my right. My left is stronger than my right however. No doubt about that one.
I fight southpaw, it always felt more comfortable.

its good that your left is stronger. You can throw powerful left hooks which are more powerful than right hands.

What Greys says is True. Also power is generated from the opposite side when Punching.

Another factor in the equation is that sometimes, one leg or arm is slightly longer than the other. This means the muscles will be slightly bigger (stronger). It could also affect leverage.

Another factor could be nerve impingement in the spinal cord. A misaligned vertebra pinching on the nerves feeding a certain muscle group could diminish its performance.
