    did yu remove all the jets, when cleaning the fixed jets are behind plugs, and require a special tool to remove. still sounds like you have clogged high speed jets. or your link&sinc is off.

      i wish I had some ideas for you but I haven't been able to fix my own boat. I have a 68 evinrude 55hp with a simular problem. I have cleaned the carbs, replaced the fuel lines, checked compression, adjusted the floats, and cleaned the high spead orfices......I haven't got much of a clue on where to go next. I have posted a thread called
      "68 evinrude 55hp" It might be worth a look.

      What is a link and sync?

        Don't rev it up on the muffs, beyond what you need to keep it running, risk of thermal runaway and major damage.

        How it runs on the muffs is no indication of how it'll run under load.

        You can't "see" whether carbs have blockages. Did you soak 'em overnight in something like b-12 chemtool? Remove the core plugs & shoot compressed air or carb cleaner in the spray can through all the orfices?

        Check the timer base make sure it moves smoothly without sticking when throttle is advanced. Also make sure the throttle cam hits the roller right on the mark - slightest bit early will make it die on acceleration. Make sure throttle plates are parallel.

        Look for a leak in the primer valve (jdt, you have choke plates instead, make sure they are open - perfectly horizontal - except when the choke is engaged)
        It's all about the tools.
