we think we found the problem, but have not a clue how to come up with a solution
the hole in the pot is no longer completely round
the new bushing formed to that oblong hole in the pot when it was driven in
guessing we never noticed this before because the past two augers had well worn auger bushings.
the auger does not touch the sides of the feed pipe, so that is not the problem, i do believe it's this issue with the pot bushing hole.
i do not have money to replace the pot, currently on disability due to serious health issues, had to borrow the money from my buddy to get the auger, am at wits end............at this point i need a solution to make some heat in the building.......running on kero stinks and costs a fortune.
