Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Do you have the year and model number on the outboard available?
It looks like you read my response. Are you still here?
I never received a response from you. Do you have the year and model number on the outboard available?
Well... At minimum I would need to know if the engine is carbureted or fuel injected. Do you which it is?
It's on a sticker on the clamp bracket. Are you near the outboard now to go check for this, or is it going to be a while?
Okay i'll wait for 10 minutes
Okay what was the model number?
F100TLRY is a carbureted engine, not fuel injected. Is there a history on this engine, have you ever personally seen it run correctly or make full power? Is it missing at all RPMS or just idle? How old is the fuel itself?

You either have the wrong hood or the wrong model number. Do you want to take a couple of pictures of the engine so we can see exactly what you have?

Thanks, ***** ***** turn the engine so that I can see the other side of it, that is where the intake is. The top cowling is the same for the carb and the FI, only the sitckers are different. Since you bought this rebuilt, I want to make sure that you have.
Yes it does. This is a carb engine. Was is sold to you as an EFI?
When the engine bogs down, would pumping the primer bulb over and over help it to run better?
How is the oil level in the engine right now? Low or high?
Have you pulled the plugs to look at the tips of them?
Have you serviced the cooling system since you bought the engine?
Yes it would be very helpful. It would also help if it can be on a trailer, as there are other items that may need to be looked at, and it is much easier to check them standing behind the engine rather than hanging over the back of the boat.
Yes, the EFI, or electronic fuel injection is a much better system than the 4 carbs that you have on your engine. It burns less fuel and gives less issues than carbs. My guess is that the place that built the engine had the cowl for your engine was broken, so they threw this one on it. Or they were trying to pass the engine off as something it is not.
