So my Eagle is road legal and I've been enjoying it., t a.

Problem is after 15 km of driving or so the engine stalls out. It restarts without a problem every time.

I have a new solenoid and hei distributor in it, engine seems to run fine then it either dies totally or becomes intermittent then dies.

Thoughts? I'm leaning towards a bad coil in the HEI, or possilby a bad starter solenoid (don't think it's this).

Anyone have a few suggestions?

Don't rule out a carb issue, had a mc crap out on me like that for no apparent reason, then restart and be fine. Coil is a good thing to check though.

As I said on the Den, check the end play of the dist. When the thrust washer between the gear and housing falls apart, the rotor can rise up enough that the pickup coil no longer reads it, killing spark.
