I have a Makerbot Replicator 1 Dual that has never worked that great and I have spent the last 6 years messing with it.  My print seems to fail around the 30 minute mark and the drive gear just spins on the filament leaving a notch so it no longer moves.  I've used new nosles and upgraded to the spring loaded drive block.  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53125  I recently noticed that while clea
