Got every thing put back together again and ran the test gcode again. It did extrude OK (not good, but it worked) for a while but it still made an awful noise. After the first few layers it did end up chewing through the filament and stopped extruding.

I have everything but a mount to switch the hot end to an E3D v5 to see if that helps at all. My guess is that it wont help much if at all, but at this point I will try anything to get this working. I really won’t have time on thursday to work on it before I leave. Ill get to disconnect from technology (camping, mountain biking, rock climbing in the woods) from Sunday to Sunday over spring break. Just a bio test and a robotics competition between me and an awesome week.
