The condenser does sound a bit small, you could stuff some copper potscrubber in and around the coil for a bit more efficiency.
That 3" cap definately needs to have a vent hole in it. (Minimum of 3/8")
You want to get rid of any rubber. The stuff used in the cork will leach. Flour dough will work, even if it is a pain.
I also agree, you are running too much heat.
When using it in potstill mode, remove most of/all the packing from the column, close the reflux valve and open the takeoff fully. This will work, but is still extremely slow going. Best to make another head that can be swapped over.
