I would readjust your idle mixture screw with engine in gear and on the water at an idle. That is a common problem after rebuilding carbs. It will run diferently under a load in the water. Just tie up to the dock and adjust them there.

Engine wont rev when in neutral

take it to a service shop
I suspect that you put the new motor onto old fuel lines and the rubber on the insides of the primer and hoses has not broken down and is blocking the high speed jets or affecting the fuel pump valves
if it is fuel injected , the shop will be able to read the fault codes to find the faulty sensor

Evinrude 60 hp tracker dies below 1100 rpm, will not idel. cleaned carbs. didnt help. runs great under throtle. compression on all 3 cylinders 121 to 125. why cant I get it to idel.

the idle circuit in the carby still has a blockage that is preventing it from allowing the fuel through
compression is good
possible that the ignition timing is not correct
at this point I would suggest that the carby be overhauled by a Evinrude service shop as rubber from hoses , fuel pump breaks down and fine particles get into jets and passages and block up the holes

My 2003 chryler seabring water pump went out i changed it got the car back together when i first start it in the morning it idels fine then when it warms up at stops the idle go's to 800 rpm or st

OK. Nothing to do with water pump.
Recommend checking your IAC (Idle Air Control) circuit. This allows air to bypass the throttle body while idling, at stop sign, etc.

My mercury 35 hp outboard motor idle's fine but won't run

While at the river try to adjust the fuel air mixture. When you are on the water it puts the engine under a load and if that dont work then dont be afraid to bump up the idle stop screw slightly.

Evinrude outboard hard to start

If it is flooding then you need to remove the carbs and check your float level and see if your needle and seat are worn out. If you hold your carb upside down with the bowl off then your float should be level straight accross. If it is not straight accross then you can bend the tang by the needle until it is level.
