Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
The place to start is with the spark plugs. Run the engine hard and get it to cut out. Then shut it down. Remove the plugs, see if one of them is wet with water or fuel. If water, most likely place is the exhaust gasket, if fuel, the carb or the recirc system.
Use a timing light on the engine and determine which cylinder is misfiring. then you can swap the coils and see of the problem follows. If it does not, you will need a multimeter to test the output of the stator and the trigger to see if one of them may be failing or the CDI.
Great,let me know.
