The overheat condition can cause the rings to lose their tension. If you are truly seeing 40-50% leakage past the rings, they have lost their seal. Pull it out and tear it down.

I wouldn't go more than 900 RPM max. Anything over that and you start to risk damage to the clutch.

The cam will work fine. I'm not familiar with the type of ignition you have. Bottom line is you will want about 32* of total advance at WOT.

That oil is way too thin for a marine engine. Suck it out. 5qt Mobil 1 is only $26 at Walmart. Not worth having a failure.
You have essentially turned it into 5w-30 by adding the 2 qts of 15w-50.
