Default Merco 35

Hi, I have an old merco 35 glow engine in a 1 metre balsa and ply racing hull using a 45x direct drive prop and flexible joint. I get plenty of water through the cooling head, the hoses I use are far bigger than the nipple on the engine, and the engine is fairly open to the air. the problem i have is the engine overheats and stalls after about 5 mins use[]. I am using straight fuel, no nitro with 20% oil and have the needle set so i get plenty of smoke from the exhaust and good throttle response. Any idea why this is happening anyone???
