Re: engine cuts out 15-20 minutes later?
Next time this event happens, safely pull over to the side of the road.
Check for spark. If no spark, then no power coming from the ignition switch, or, faukty ground at dist body to engine block.
Check fuel level in carb by using a pipe cleaner. Remove air cleaner and shove a pipe cleaner down the vent tube and pull back out to see if the cleaner is wet. No fuel, then it is being evaporated. Wrap fuel line with tin foil and attach clothes pins to dissipate the heat from the steel tubing.
Remove fill cap at rear of car. Is it pressurized or drawing a vacuum? If pressurized, fuel is being heated up by engine/tailpipe heat, shouldn't be a problem. If a vacuum, then cap is not venting to the atmosphere, fuel pump can't pump a vacuum.
