If your having trouble keeping it idling and you think your idle is set right, go hotter. You will typically lose a little power though.

If you have no problems with idle, try a colder plug. Power will go up a little but it will be a little harder to tune. Some engines really like hot plugs.

I would say that if the MC59 is working, keep it.
