we might be getting somewhere. are you saying it stumbles weakly slower and slower then finally dies ?

or does it shout off cleanly, just like someone turned off the key ? I think you are saying it the first one.

don't think I've seen the year or version yet. it's not a diesel .. it could be an air-cooled.. and I am sure it's a waterboxer actually .. but I don't think I've seen which one. I think it's an 83 to 85 1.9 waterboxer . is this a test ?
