Yes it does loose spark during the intermittent time when it quits running. It only stalls or cuts out when it has been operated for a while. That is why I am suspecting the coil. I havent rulled out the 90 degree spark plug connector which had a resistor in it. Wondering if it could be breaking down when it is hot.
Refering to the electrical wiring diagram for a G16A, there are several components and their wiring connections that could cause the engine stop relay to drop out intermittently which is designed to short the ignition coil.
I have checked and rulled out the following:
a.)The ignition switch contacts, connector, red & brown wire connections. (Item #12 on the wiring diagram.)
b.)Engine stop relay coil and contacts are good and working. Connector and wiring is making good contact. (Item #1 on the wiring diagram.)
c.) Installed new spark plug .Cleaned the spark plug connector & boot. Applied silicone grease to the inside of boot.
I have not checked the following due to time constraints. I will check these next:
d.) The accelerator stop switch, wiring and connector which could have contact problems or loose connections. (Item #13 on the wiring diagram.)
e.) The red wire (hot) + connection at the battery.
f.)The engine ground connection. (Item #2 on the wiring diagram.)
If these check out OK the only things left are the coil and the spark plug connector.
I will post the results after completing the above. ---Please advise if you have any other ideas.
Thanks for the input.
