Default Anyone in the Toledo Ohio area?

I know this is going to sound dumb but I am on my last nerve with my nitro M/T. I had it tuned in good for about 60-65 degree weather but while tuning it for 80 degree weather my one way bearing took a dump so I picked up and new one along with a pull start and new igniter at Hobby Town USA. Well now while tuning I can get it fired but know its too rich(rear tire gets real wet and glow plug is soaked) and when I start leaning it out in 1/8 turns it runs better but still to rich and when I give it gas I think it loading up on fuel and shutting off. I also temped it and got 224 max on idle. The Two local Hobby stores suck and I am hoping that someone local reads this and may want to help me set the carb? If so please LMK I live near Hobby Stop but can meet anywhere to try to get it tuned so I can go bash.

Thanks Aaron

Im in Medina, not really close though. 224 on idle is too hot for a idle. Mine comes off the track at around 225ish.What kind of mill is this?

is that the little track up on douglas? I didnt think they still ran up there if that is the place your talking about but may need to head up there this weekend.

Also the temp I got was me playing a little with it then temping it.... I know it is just so loaded with fuel that the sleeve and piston wont get damaged and this is a Savage X with the stock f4.1 but am thinking about getting a fresh motor soon if this wont tune right. (I dont know if the carb is damaged or what)

check if you have good compression.
check your lines, fuel and from exhaust to tank.
check the exhaust gaskets.

if some of these are broken, the engine will not hold tune.

change the glow plug to what engine manufacturer says is the right one.

now go by the book and re tune the engine from scratch.

if you don't have the manual, you can find it here.
