How do I make the flame of my water heater pilot bigger, it seems to little and goes out every day. I have installed a new thermo coupling but the pilot flame is small. Is there a place to increase th

If the pilot is going out, it may be from lack of combustion air intake. Make sure you have fresh air in the water heater room...one within 18 inches from the ceiling, & one within 18 inches from the floor. The size of the openings is determined by the BTU's of the water heater.

It sounds like you've read the manual.
And cleaned the burner parts according to manual.
You replaced thermal reset, but system is still tripping, so either the gas valve and tubing are bad, the thermocouple is bad, or there is a problem with gas pressure, or gas line.
