Thanks seaton,

I think the problem is resolved, you were right - more tension.
I didn't think the glued extruder arm would take it but it held and I printed a perfect one to replace it.

parts are perfect, speed is fast... all is good, actually better than before!!

thanks all for help, much appreciated for your interest/attention.

ok, this is good. more tension works, prints are good.

But, I'm noticing I have to constantly add more tension to the extruder arm.
Eventually I run out of tension, can't turn the bolt anymore..... it seems the extruder arm keeps getting slightly bent?

I also experienced this problem. I had a crack in the print head part where the tensioning screw enters first. The one just behind the washers.

Can you see for certain during printing that the filament is indeed feeding in at exactly the rate the motor attempts Fut Coins
