seeding way to much canola

I run a 2003 concord 2300 air cart - cereals no issues quite happy.

I have seeded canola with success in the past but this year cannot get it to apply correct amount. Calibrate for 5 pounds an acre - go seed and its putting down 10-15 pounds....

I changed seals - my canola roller is tight in its slot

i conclude the fan is pulling canola out of the tank somehow - i cannot figure it out how.

My fan running at 5500 rpm (putting lots of fertilizer down so i need wind) check ground no canola is cracked

completely stumped...

I run double shoot and very high rpm to carry fertlizere with out issue to the ends of the drill... Not sure if you have ware strips under your roller with that tank, but they could need replacing, other idea is a tank air damptner valve to limit air pressure to the canola tank, it always seams you need to seed half your land to figure out
