Believe me, the Italians can make JUNK too, it just doesn't come out of Nova or Star factories. There are some Italian made clunkers out there.

And no, I'm not bashing works motors, totally different factory I'm bashing but I won't mention them.

and the glow plug is good and, i have lean out the top end a little also.

and ive lean out the low end a half of a turn 1/4 turn and same thing , and i have to hit the throttle to get it started also.
another stab in the dark, but hows your clutch? you say it runs good down the parking lot, but dies when you let up/stop.. clutch hanging up will cause that..

i have leaned the low end out 1/8 of a turn and 1/4 of a turn, i leaned the top end out about 1/4 of a turn, from factory but havnt messed with the idle .

If I were you I would set the idle to about 1.5 MM and then lean the top and bottom until it fires on the box and stays running. Make sure you preheat it good first, and use a new glow plug ( maybe slightly hotter than what yo are using now) turn both needles in 1/4 hour increaments only until it fires and stays running do not overlean them until break in is complete. I think it's just a combination of a tight metal pinch, too rich on the needles and not hot enough. Your pinch will shut down the engine when you are off throttle if you let your engine cool down. Try not to run it on the ground for 2 full tanks until you can heat cycle some of the pinch out

Stalling isn't caused by worn shoes, it can be caused by bad springs or bearings.

I think a slightly loose or slipping flywheel can do you in too.

take it up 1/4th turn and see what you have. If your boggin on end start going back. If you are still just ripping on bottom end than go up a 1/16th till you get were you want.
