Default Re: New engine worries ( 1st build)

Like I said the engine gets hot, starts sounding bad and quits idleing, I took the head off this morning to check for signs of seizing, everything looks good, if I can only run it for a couple minutes at a time it'll be next year before its broken in.
Not sure I understand how going with less oil makes for a richer fuel to air mix? I purposly went heavy on the oil for break-in as I know this is a clean burning oil and wont foul the plug, I look at the ooze from the pipe as a good thing for break-in.
So, Pilotgeek, you are running a 68 main jet in an RT carb at close to sea level?
Should I keep running this as it is ?
