Cleanout Lever on EFM 520

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

I notice if I remove the sheet metal cover allowing access to the blower, and cam arm for the worm feed, I can pull the cleanout lever further than if I have the sheet metal cover on. The lever hits the sheet meal cover and stops the lever from about 1 to 2 inches short of full range.

Is this OK? I'm new to this and I want to make sure I am redirecting the air to properly clean the fines from the burn pot.

Thanks for any input.
