When turning the needle to the "bottom", does it really close....?....try to "close" the needle valve and check, by choking, if the engine still draws fuel.
If it does (which it shouldn't), the needle may have been re-soldered to the threaded part in the wrong position, i.e. the needle doesn't reach the bottom of its seat, and you cannot run the engine lean enough.....
This is not unusual when dealing with pre-"collector's engines"...it's worth a check.

Remedy: Re-check & re-solder...

BTW: Nice engine...
