Engine Cutting Out

Post by 1967moke » Mon Aug 06, 2018 6:48

Got a really annoying intermittent fault with my English Moke. The engine can just cut out for no reason, and then it’s unable to be re-started for about 10 mins. It can do it after a very short journey, or run for hours then cut out. I have changed the coil, condenser, points etc. It feels like an electrical fault. The engine is a 998cc ex-mini with ballast wire to the coil.

I’m running out of ideas, could it be the ballast wire maybe? I’m going to change the condenser again, as I know there are dodgy batches out there.

Otherwise the engine runs very well, and doesn’t miss a beat.
