savage x 4.6 will not stay running

this is my first nitro rc. but I have many electric rc's 1/10 and 1/8.
when I got this truck it ran and tuned it with no problems.
I have less then 1 gallon of fuel through it.
it starts everytime now.
if I pick it up and rev it, it runs and shifts.
when I put it on the ground it struggles to keep running. and always stalls under throttle.
after if dies it wont start unless I give it full throttle , then it starts and idles fine.

all needles start flush.
and if I lean it out, it gets better for about 3/8 of a turn on the high needle.. can't remember the name sorry... then it starts stalling sooner.

I have taken the Carb off took it all apart and cleaned it in a Ziploc with some new nitro fuel, ok way to clean it I hope?

I took the engine out and it still as good compression (turned it by hand and it has a strong pinch at the top)

put a new glow plug in it.

had my friend at a local hobby store try and tune it ( he is the nitro tech there) and he could not tune it.

clutch is not sticking.

new fuel tank and fuel lines

new fuel..

I think something is wrong with the crab.
do you think I an right?
