hi, small problem here, finished breaking the engine in but still running a little on the rich side, the engine starts fine, idles fine and runs with good power through the range and has good smoke, the problem is, after a few runs at half-full throttle, when i pull in and let it idle everything seems fine but as soon as i try to pull off from idle after a run the engine stalls, any ideas?

Sounds like the LSN is still fat or you may need to bump up your idle gap a little, Sounds like when you do a high end pass you are clearing the fuel storage out of the low end which lets you idle a little longer than when you do only half throttle passes you are not clearing the engine out so when it drops down to a idle and you flatten it you give the engine to much fuel and with the glow plug cooler it quenches it and flames...
