My 50 hp evinrude w/ VRO was run dry by a well intentioned soul last fall. Now after rebuilding the carbs (full of oil) the engine will not idle. Runs strong at top end but can not get a smooth idle at all. Any help?

The idle orifice is the smallest opening into the carb throat (just downstream from the throttle plate). I suspect your overhaul failed to fully clear one or both.

Make sure the choke(enrichner) is not on. It is that small red tab near the air valve next to your carb or fuel pump. If you leave that on it will act like the choke is on. Make sure uit is turned so it "clicks" into an indent.
