Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

Store your nylon in a plastic bucket with a desiccant. Even better, feed directly from the bucket using a John Gest fitting and tubing to get the filament to the printer.

I have not used ePA, but I print several other nylons, all at about 265C. Have you tried a higher temperature?
