So the noises i had thought were squeaking metal from auger or something is actually high pitch vacuum leaks from hopper lid seal. When I looked up PN:
It shows it to be a roll vs single rectangle/oval seal like expected...actually now see seam behind latch which is certainly part of where it is leaking.
So I was thinking of buying a sheet of material to make new seal. Or I can buy OEM. Or make from some other roll similar high temp neoprene like material roll but making the turns required assume would not work well. Or add layer/fix seam...

Has anyone replaced this seal? I could not find thread or posts.
