Hey I roasted 4 batches this afternoon, and I couldn't even raise to 
outside temp.

Ben,
Did you also replace the timer with something like a Gray-bar photo =
timer?  I am not sure of the GB's contact ratings but a relay could be =
use to do the heavy work.

Just completed 5 batches-still in a learning mode so used lots of gas-heated
up the garage-finally figured out how to hear cracks-turn off the bloody
drum motor for a second-now got them cracks down to a gnats behind-at last
now can roast decent coffee.  Having lousy hearing is a bear.  Oh the beans
are not scorched by turning off the drum motor for a couple of seconds. Did
some Col, Kona and Sum Man-about 7# or so.

Glad to hear something popping.  If you are like me, I have been living =
on a learning curve for 65 years so far.
There is a Floyd Burton living in my town.
But he is shorter than you.

Its not on reduced voltage. I took the rectifier bridge off and I am 
driving it off of a 12v dc wall transformer. Its a champ for 84 gr in a FR+

No I just removed it, and use switches. I did tear a FR timer apart 
today looking to see if I could use a full turn (turns about 1/2 turn  
right now) to get longer times, but no luck.
