1971 Merc 50hp Won't idle

I have a 1971 50hp Merc outboard #3241445 that will die with below 50% throttle. I have rebuilt both carbs, rebuilt the fuel pump, replaced the fuel lines to the pump and from the pump to the carbs, checked the tank for venting, and just about everything else I could think of. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance !

Problem resolved !

I was able to find the problem with the 50hp Merc outboard not able to idle. In one of the carbs the float level was WAY off. Adjusted the float level and purrs like a kitten.
