Default Engine issues!!

A little advise please....I have an alpha dragon 3 with roughly 7 gallons through it. She always runs great till my last main. I come in for fuel and if i don't keep it high raving during my fuel stop and for about a quarter of a lap, it wants to act like it wants to die. it runs rich with no power then starts going again. I also noticed top end power was way down and acting very rich during the main. We even leaned out the HSN by 2hrs with no improvement! Any suggestions ? is my engine smoked or possible leak somewhere? Thanks

Just a guess, but with 7 gallons on it I think it might be done. Normally when they start getting hard to tune and don't want to stay running that's usually a sign they are worn out.

Replace the bearings and have the sleeve pinched. Send it to RW mods.
