Someone just gave me a 1997 Mercury 75HP.  Looks like the top cylinder has 90# compression.

90# cylinder runs intermittantly.

 

Cylinder wear likely from no lube.  No lube likely from no fuel/oil delivery.  No fuel/oil delivery likely from clogged carb.

Clogged carb likely from ethanol.

 

Buy a compression gauge and test all cylinders.  Below 100-110# needs rebuild.
