Re: Atomic 4 cutting out in forward.
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,
