Ford 8N 1951 with converted 12v generator, run good for about 15 minutes and then dies. Restart runs ok with clutch in, no load and then dies under load. Wait for 10-15 minutes to cool down and it runs for 10 - 15 minutes. Point replaced a year ago. Could it be the coil?

Hello Rich, welcome to the forum.

Yes, it is most likely your coil malfunctioning when it gets hot. Replace it and see how it goes.

One other thing it might be.... The vent in your gas cap plugged. It can run till a vacuum builds up in the gas tank, then it can no longer get adequate fuel. Next time it quits, simply loosen the gas cap and see if this solves your problem.
