89 Johnson 200 gt V6 dies when given gas in forward

I've got an 89 johnson 200 gt V6 that I just purchased that had been sitting for 4 years. I changed all the plugs fuel filters and cleaned the carbs and fuel tank out. Got it to start idles a little rough but consistent. It has a Hot foot throttle, the engine will Rev up in neutral but when I try to give it gas in forward or reverse it dies. But will idle just fine in gear and push the boat around just fine until I push on the throttle. Anyone have any ideas?
