1977 55hp Evinrude

Can someone provide me with some detailed, step by step instructions on how top get this motor to run smooth ('77 55hp Evinrude)? When I am able to get the thing to start (with the warm up lever up) it either runs wide open or after having eased off on the warmup lever it bypasses idle and shuts off. So basically I can not get it to idle. By the time I go to put it in gear, it dies.

I have cleaned both carbs. Plugs look half way decent. Got new gas with a product called Sea Foam in it. HELP!

Might try this http://www.westmarin.com/

And see if they have the manual for it that far back.
