Tower Hobbies .46 NEED HELP!

I have 2 Tower hobbies glow engines, one I have a lot of run time on and the other i hardly used. The engines both quit at half throttle. They both started doing this around the same time! I have changed the fuel tank lines, the clunk, i changed the carbeurator, and it doesnt matter what the fuel mixture is. I even tried putting a pump on it at one point. I can't get them to work right! Does anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like the bearings may be rusted and on the way out.

Have you opened the high idle needle valve so it will run rich then readjust it, have they sat for any length of time?
