Start with the simple stuff.
Good fuel? No trash in fuel and fuel is either fresh or was stored properly with stabilizer.
Good fuel line/primer bulb (no cracks or dry rotting)?
Does the bulb stay hard after switching into gear?
Can you squeeze the ball and keep it running after shifting into gear? If so it could be the fuel pump. They will go bad eventually even with no ethanol.
How do the plugs look? Gunky black, ashe white, or just right (in the middle)?
After letting it run for a while can you put your hand on the head without getting burned? This is how you can tell if it is overheating due to stuck thermostat or water cooling issues.
If all these things check out I'd be looking toward the carbs, although it could be something else too!
Bad fuel lines and primer bulbs can cause all kinds of wierd symptoms. If you or a friend has another fuel line, try that one.
I gave up on trying to find non-ethanol fuel. I just boat in too many places to to be able to do it & always heard it is even worse to mix ethanol gas with non-ethanol gas. Now I just use marine Stabil & seafoam.
Best of luck & post back if you find the problem.

Does it shut off like somebody pulled the kill switch or does it kinda die out slowly? ?
