intermitant stalling on stock 87

My friend and I are trying to figure out what is wrong with his 87 Samurai. Every once in a while, it starts to sputter and buck, and then stalls, another start will bring us back to bucking heavily in any gear. If we leave it for a while and start it again, it runs fine. Any ideas? (and yes, it has been playin in the mud pits lately)

Re: intermitant stalling on stock 87

Got'ah try to answer this before slips off into bbs unknown...

Electrical best shot maybe...
Ignition coil going bad, when it gets hot it fails
all ignition coils will in time fail as high voltage
slowly breaks down dielectric insulation. This may
happen a little faster than normal in a Sam as coil
is oil and position horizontal and rather than vertical.
to fix replace (epoxy better for horz)
Next best shot....
Mud or water on engine in compartment caused carbon
tracking across rotor cap and or wires
Clean and dry high voltage parts.

Long shots
ECM poorly grounded to fix tighten ground screws
Do 60K Cancel sw self system test

Longer shots
Choke on carb or float or pump or water in fuel
