Re: Atomic 4 cutting out in forward.

Hi All,
Once again,thanks for all the responses and suggestions. Believe it or not the culprit was the ignition coil which was new (3 hours of use). Yesterday, I replaced the coil and the spark plugs, which were also new and she now runs like a dream. The A4 mechanic checked the engine out today and said it was in great shape. He mentioned another common cause for the engine cutting out is a damaged low tension lead from the distributor to the coil. on the positive side, I now have a new carb., new fuel pump, new primary filter/separator, new plugs and fuel lines, etc, etc. So hopefully there will be no more mechanical problems for the rest of the cruising season.

Regards to all,
P Mc T
