As long as it's not getting hot, you're not doing any damage. I say tighten her down a bit. I have had similar issues in the past and they were due to the shaft being out of alignment. If it's not perfectly in the center of the log, it'll never work right. Make sure you're aligned and that your cutlass bearing(s) are still viable.
