Ive got a1983 90hp evinrude . Ive had to carbs overhauled ,new reeds put in ,new fuel pump replaced, new spark plugs ,hoses replaced that go to the primer and on the engine itsself.  the motor runs fine when its on the muffs but when I put in the water it will start but coughs and sputters then quits. what else can I do to fix the frustating problem?

Hello If engine spits it is usually running lean. If carbs are ok check that throttle plates are closed at idle position. choking the engie while running will help verify clogged low speed circut if engine picks up rpm when chocked.
