Default wont start

HPI NMT .15fe I had it started a few weeks ago and put after run oil in it and hopped up a few things since then and now that i want to run it again it wont start. I am using a new fuel. (HPI 20% blend) my ideas for whats going wrong:

1 air leaks (no clue how to check or fix)
2 glow plug (glows but takes a while)(heater thing has new batteries)
3new fuel

BTW it will start while pulling the pull starter out but once I let it recoil back it in stops

and it looks like fuel is coming out of the baring thing that the flywheel connects to

With a new fuel you will need to retune the engine for it to run right, or on some engines run at all. If you are using a fuel that has a lot more lubrication in it (which I am guessing it would, why downgrade?), your best bet will be leaning the top end 1/2 turn then once you get it started, richen it back out to safety. If you have a temp gun, put it to use. Throw a new plug in there just for kicks, if it helps, great, if it doesnt make a difference, than keep the one you took out as a spare.
