1999 Honda BF50

1999 Honda BF50 outboard. Had carbs rebuilt and synced by professional. Idle speed was set at 950 rpm. Ran boat twice for several hours and it ran great. Third time I went out engine quit, no spark. Replaced CDI and charging coils. Never touched the carbs. Engine cranked first try but the starter dragged a little. Engine now idles at 3500 rpm and the negative battery cable melted. Backed off idle adjustment screw all the way and still idles @ 3500 rpm
