Default Help from the guru's, TS .52 keeps blowing glow plugs?

Ok, nearly new engine, broken-in with Dar's 2-stroke break-in method, with maybe 10-15 tanks through it of 2.5%/20%(50/50) fuel. The tank and lines are brand new, with a scintered clunk. When I point the nose up, it leans out tremendously. More than any other engine, so I adjust the carb a tad rich in that position. This makes the level condition very rich. Fly and come back, and the plug is dead.

In writing this out, I'm thinking maybe it's a tank pressure problem?? Why so lean when I point the nose up? I went through 4 glow plugs yesterday, ouch!
