I'd agree. Our schout used to cut out & die, and then
restart after a few minutes. Good thing it is a
4speed, as keeping it in gear, keeps the engine
turning & the PS pump working, as it would always die
when I was driving. It was a prestolite distributor,
and dad said he thins the circuit board was cracked.
New distributor, problem solved.
