I'll try to remember and take photos next time I'm near it, basically a wiper motor with a short arm on it which pushes open a spring trap door. Spring closes it. There is another slide above it which is adjusted with thumb screws to adjust the trap door size

I would make mud guards removable there a classic for hitting gate posts. I actually had to take mine off completely so it would fit under feed bin between pillars.

looks good so far let us know how you get on with dispensing bit 👍🏻
