The .46 is kinda hard to tune. If the idle is too high try adjusting the idle screw. I think counter clockwise.

If you broke your motor in the best settings I found out are two and a half turns out on the high end the low end is one turnout from flush and the idle is pinch the fuel line and if it revs up for 3 to 5 seconds and then cuts out that's proper that's what works for me and it works every time on one pole it starts and stays running
