sounds like the gun is twisted up. If its twisted up it will bind and not allow the wire to feed. Make sure too that the hose part of the gun isn't looping around itself.

Took it apart and the tube the wire goes into after the power feed rollers had got pushed in some, letting the wire fold itself in a ball--

working good now- thanks for the info...

I let it be looser now and went well... seems like the feed dial isnt working well as I had it turned down to 0 and it still fed wire like a firehose--- I will do the throttle bracket but when I get to seat belt tabs Im getting a pro...

The license light bracket is ugly but strong...
