25 hp 2012 etec tiller no power but starts and idles fine.

Hey experts: I took my motor out of storage today and have an issue. Pumped ball but it didn't get solid
pumped 10-15 times. Hooked it up and it started on very first pull. It wouldn't throttle up in neutral. It took it out and just trolled for a bit while, fishing. Throttled up once and seemed to take but was only for 3 seconds or so. ? The ball would not get solid hard at all, firm but far from hard. It cut off several times. The first time I tried starting again but no go. Pumped ball and it started fine.but I throttle up and it cut off a few times. Then just let it idle and it was fine then but when I give it more throttle it just bogs down. Idled back to dock. Wondering if it's the fuel line and pump ball. Have another ball and fuel line ordered at Can Tire for oick up tomorrow. Any help would be appreciated!

If it's been in storage and this is the first run of the season, I wonder if the tank has been vented.

Ouch. Need to break the seal on cap and pump ball up again?

Strange though, it will continue run smooth while idling, no issue. ?

It could be the electric high pressure fuel pump locked up from sitting.

It throttled up once but won't do it anymore. I took a short video but have now where to post it here.
