Has it 'run well' at all since you serviced the lower unit? Will it continue to run if you choke it - even partially?
Will it "idle' in gear or does it stall immediately upon engaging the fwd gear? If it idles OK I'd guess the gearing is OK, and unfortunately this still sounds like a clogged jet situation despite having rebuilt the carb.
