I have a Ransomes Mercury, the engine is in good condition I have rebuild the carburettor, change the condenser, spark plug and points. I have a good spark showing and fuel to the engine.
The engine starts and runs but cuts out after about 10 minutes without misfiring and is reluctant to start back up.
I thought it was fuel starvation but have fixed this problem, the mower still cuts out. I wondered if it might need a new coil? As I have heard that that a weak coil will play up when the engine is under load?
Has anyone had any experience with this engine or coil problems.
It is quite expensive to have the coil reconditioned so did not want to go down this route if it is not the problem. The coil looks in good condition from the outside has anyone else experienced them failing on this engine?
The engine just stops with no misfire so it starts when it has cooled down so wonder if this points to the cause.
Any help or advice would be great.
