just had powerhead rebuilt and timing idle and carbs set by evinrude dealer in arizona. It is hard to start and idle is to low with warm up lever up. It also wants to die when put in gear. I have replaced plugs. I also noticed that electric primer for choke is not working, but will replace that. I have good compression and spark. I have checked all fuel lines and connections and motor is getting plenty of fuel pressure. Have not checked fuelpump yet. I tournament fished in the boat for 10 years and not problem 1. Now since rebuilt it runs horrible. I hope it is something simple. Any suggestions?

Hello idle should be 650 in gear and would turn thumbwheel on control cable counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns and raise idle screw on throttle arm.
