Did you notice the wear last month when you had it apart on the cam and push bar? Is it getting worse?
What made you tear it apart again this month? Did it jam?
Or did it finally wear down enough that it was giving you problems?
I noticed the wear when I took it apart, but it was warm enough outside at that point that I didn't notice it was giving significant problems, just "seemed" that it wasn't feeding enough. Figured I'd take it apart and clean it up in case some coal got where it shouldn't or something. I took the photos then because it didn't look right, but didn't worry about it too much.
Fast forward to this past week and it became obvious that it isn't feeding enough because it can't keep up with the thermostat when cranked, never a problem in previous seasons.
I'll probably call keystoker today and see what they suggest. I've heard they're helpful.
