Depending on which style you have, you can either change the number of teeth exposed to the drive pawl or change the "stroke" with the slotted crank. In both cases, you check the feed rate by shutting the power off to the stoker and turning the input shaft to the gearbox by hand. Make the ratchet go through a full stroke and count how many times the check pawl clicks. If my description isn't clear I can probably take a video of mine.
I am not sure about what you are saying, there are two dogs , one to the right side I can move half way around to the left but looks like it does nothing, the other dog moves the coal screw . it is connected with a carter key at the end of the gear. I just set the base in the cellar and I wanted to see if the motor was working.
