I'm kidding ........ yes it is:
I recently replaced my gasket and noticed that my lid is set back toward the hinge about a quarter inch. I don't recall that it was like this before the replacement, but I don't recall that it wasn't. Anyway, I've now noticed it and it bugs me and think that it sitting this way is going to cause the upper gasket to burn up prematurely.
I have completely taken the bands off, adjested the lid to flush and replaced the bands. WHen I tighten the hinge back down it pulls the lid towards it.
The only way I can see to fix this is to shim the hinge on the bottom so that it pushes the lid forward. Anyone had any luck with this or any other method to correct it?
