At 4 or3 teeth same results first 6 inches from boiler tube is hot to touch could only put hand on feed tube momentarily (1 second) (6 to 12 inches from boiler I could rest hand 3-4 seconds, after that is all cool from coupling to 55 gal barrel holding the coal, is this normal ?
If the boiler has been running continuously for a few hours, there will be some heat radiating down the auger tube. If during a 20-30 minute run the auger tube stays cool/warm to the touch, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Probably. What are you burning for coal?
