    The spring inside the clutch could be broken, check that... And reset all the needles to factory settings...

    Raise your idle speed.
    +1 Or you can try riching the lsn, or leaning it, more info on how it runs would help too...

    i think this is due to clutch spring, you should check first this spring then other.

    One quick check to see if it is the clutch springs, will it idle if you lift the truck off the ground? If so and your drive train is spinning up, clutch is engaging early on. If not, then you got tuning issues.

    How much fuel have you ran through this engine? Have you tried a new glow plug?
    Checked the compression? Is it good?

    when it dies, does it start to cut out then climb in rpm first or does it slow in rpm and cut out.

    Your engine may be worn out.

    adjust the low end needle in 1/4 turn steps. Do not touch the high end yet. First go 1/4 lean, then 1/2 lean. if there is no improvement go 1/2 turn rich to get back to where you were, then another 1/4 richer , etc. Post results.
