Please keep sending ideas.
There are holes on the auger tube, the tubes are the whole way around the tube, as this is an after market tube. Will the holes all the way around make a difference or not?
Thanks and keep suggesting ideas.

I don't know if the pipes were always that way or why they had two notches, but it seems like a mistake was made and then copied.
Any more holes than what are found at the top of the pipe are a waste.
