Default engine dies

I bought a used engine ( almost new ), the guy was cool and stuff checked my heli and stuff. Now I went home started the engine, It ran for a sec then died, I tried adjusting the needle screw but with no luck. The engine runs for 15-60s with the glowplug ignitor on, then dies... adding throttle also makes it die. On top of that the muffler spits out alot of unburned fuel. I tried making it more lean but it didnt solve the problem.
PS the needle screw is 1.5revolutions from open.
