You missed the point of Tyson's message. If it is the coil, the =
ignition module, etc, it is likely a symptom that is heat related. This =
would explain why your car runs for a bit, then stops, then starts again =
once the faulty component cools off. I had a electronic ignition module =
do this, others have seen similar occurances with the coil. The Flash =
Test won't tell you when you have an intermittant spark.

>Sounds a whole lot like the ignition. You can sorta watch the tach =

tach) sputter and stumble then the fuel system should be inspected. I =
troubles in my 76 B a while back and when the coil cut out, the car =
instantly, no sputter or anything.
Well, I hooked up a Gunson "FlashTest" to each plug wire and got healthy
Thanks for the suggestion though ole chap.
