left me walkin

1st time ever left me walkin. Been runnin fine no problems, headed to the woods yesterday, and it died. Driving down the highway at 55mph and it quits. Turns over fine, 180 lbs on every cylinder, getting gas. Pulled the front end apart timing belt looks fine. pulled the dist out every thing looks good tested the generator its within specs, did not test the ignitor yet gotta get it home first. Only thing I can find so far is the primary coil resistance is 1.19 and the manual calls for 1.35-1.65 is this enough of a variance to cause a problem. One more thing, put it all back together and cranked and ran fine cranked it about a dozen times let it run off and on for an hour buttoned it all up and took off. Three blocks down the road same thing now its dead. Gotta be a fire problem it looks weak, any ideas. Im stumped

Gettin pretty simple here but sounds like the same thing I was going through it was the black wire off the positive side of the battery it has a small connection about 6 in. down that had some corrosion on it pull it apart clean it and dab in some of that electrical goop good luck!

Re: left me walkin

I had a similar problem. Turned out to be that a wire on the backup light harness mounted on the transmission was bare. It was arcing to the body and grounding out. Causing the motor to die. Sounds stupid but the problem went away when i unhooked the backup lights.
