Can you give us some more info? how old is the engine?
so the engine now runs but is really rich and it only moves the truck when you get to half throttle or more? sounds like it is running rich and that you will need to lean it out.

Lean it out. If fuel is spitting out then its really rich. Did you ever touch the needles after break in?

Its way to way to rich. It shouldn't be spiting fuel out that means its not burning that fuel. Turn you hsn about 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn clockwise and than try. Then keep do this process and till it gets better.

Check your slipper clutch. It should be 1/4 turn out from all the way tight.
