I have a '76 Evinrude 15hp that I use as an aux on my sailboat. Problem is that after about an hour of steady motoring, about 3/4 throttle, the engine will shut off just like someone "flipped a switch". If I try to re-start it right away, it will crank and crank forever, but if I let it sit for about an hour, it will start right up. One source of information says I should change the condensers, since age and the cumulative effect of heat build-up will cause them to fail, then work fine after they cool down.
This all makes sense to me, but I'm looking for a second opinion before tearing into it!!!
