I have a 115 hp merc outboard not sure on the year, probably late 70's. It runs great out of the water with a hose connected or no hose, it's a two stroke. Once I put it in the lake or a large bucket it will barely idle and kills itself with any throttle. This is in or out of neutral doesn't seem to make a difference. Out of the water with or without a hose it runs just like it should in or out of neutral. Carburators have been cleaned and checked. It seems to pump water through ok, Anyone had a similar problem or ideas?
