When I leave the dock my evinrude 175 faststrike runs just fine. But when I stop fishing to run to a new spot or head home, my 92 evinrude will stall when I throttle up. I can avoid this problem by continually trying to throttle up way fast and sometimes it will then "kick in". I noticed that my primer bulb goes soft and opening the gas cap doesn't improve the problem. All connections seem tight and I have replaced the primer bulb. Any suggestions as to the likely problem....thanks in advance.

My bet would be dirty or gummy carbs.

replace the connector that connects the fuel line to the engine. I would also run a can of seafoam through the gas tank. give it a dbl serving of seafoam to really clean it out.

If you have a problem with a 60 degree carb motor stalling on take off you need to check the timing roller, the first picture the roller is incorrect, in the second picture the screw that is used to adjust the roller is marked, loosen the screw and move the roller until it touches the arm as indicated by the arrow.
The third picture is how the roller should be positioned.
All pictures are with the top round cover removed.

When I checked the timing roller, I found it to be out of position with a loose adjustment screw. Life is still simply strickly amazing. Thankyou very much.

Glad I could be of some help, though not my answer as I pulled it from another site that has some great information on it.
