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 am not familiar with the concord, but on a humorous note I have a strip where I opened a field with the metering on manual instead of auto rate and applied 66#/ac for half a mile. 3 bags of seed! It's a great conversation piece as it's next to a main gravel road to town too :p
