On My 8 N I put on a new one wire alt. new wireing, electronic ign, new hot coil and it's starting great but after 15 to 20 seconds shuts down, I'm thinking the resister may be bad or maybe coil anyone had this happen ?? not in the fuel supply got to be electrical . I've went over the wireing several times and i'm sure its wired right and the amp hand is showing the alt. is charging, It's got Me stumped Pat. P.

The ignition switch on those are prone to failure and could be your problem.
Easy and cheap way to eliminate that as a possibility is make a jumper wire to go across the two screws on the switch. Then run it and see.
I made up a jumper wire about 4' long with alligator clips on both ends that I use for things like that. You could also hook your jumper straight from the battery to the 12v side of the resister then test it. Then to the other side of the resister and see how it runs.
Don't forget and leave it hooked up with power applied to the EI and walk away for the night as that can burn out both your new coil and the EI module. Then you'll be mad and maybe kick the dog but it was your fault not hers.
