Good
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Fuel air and spark plugs are all new
Being as it will run and not restart until it cools down leads me to believe the ignition coil is faulty. Once it shuts down, check to see if the plug has spark

Place a business card between the ignition module and the flywheel. Let the magnets on the flywheel pull the ignition module to the flywheel and then tighten down. Remove card and gap is set
