I now have used a better plug and glued and sealed the whole.

Here is a picture showing what I mean

I am still running too rich.
Is it only the CO adjuster to adjust to make it more lean?

What would a typical idle AFR be at?
If you don't have a way to verify your idle AFR settings, my mechanic always said you can push the adjustment screw in while the engine is idling. If the idle goes down initially [the split second you depress the screw], then you're too rich at idle. If the idle goes up initially, you're too lean.

Now, this is only for idle mixture adjustments...
