You may have read my post a few weeks ago about me suspecting my fuel pump for breakdowns. Well I took it to my mechanic, and he seems to think it was my coil playing up. Apparantly, when the coil is half way on its way out, they can play up and stop igniting when they get hot... ??? Ever heard of that? Anyways, he gave me a new coil and im yet to try it out, but hopefully it works :-)

I wonder what type of coil they gave you? If this solves the problem you might consider moving to a Bosch Blue or even an electronic ignition (like Pertronix) with a high output coil and ignition wires. I've stilled those in my Super and it's been running like a sewing machine ever since.

its true, if a coil starts to "go" it will hinder starting and start to cut out, and give you all sorts of running problems. and it can also cause radio interferance!
