    Anybody out there with a solution to this problem? Starts fine, runs great for about an hour then loses power and dies. Wait a moment, starts fine, runs great for a few minutes, then loses power and dies, repeat, repeat etc. I have good fuel supply, new fuel filter, rebuilt carb, didn't help. I had all new ignition about a year ago. What would be the most likely gremlin to cause me this grief? I considered the coil failing due to heat. Any comments, possibly the condensor?
    Thanks for your help,

    Check the fuel pump first. (if your machine has one). If there is nothing wrong there then I would say to go ahead and replace the ignition module. That is probibly the problem but it wouldn't hurt to check the fuel pump first.
