I kind of had the same problem with my 75 Merc. It started a couple of times then all it would do it crank but not fire. If this sounds like your problem then it may have been 1.) you "deadman" kill switch was in the off position or

2.) you may need to have your stator replaced. ( this is kind of like a distributor cap in your auto. it controls the sparking power to your coils.) or

3.) your coils could possibly bad

Hope this can maybe help a little. I ended up having my stator replaced and the part alone cost around $300. Luckily my bro-in-law is an outboard mechanic so it didn't cost quite so much.
