Subject: Re: 900 starts and stalls and starts and stalls

I would suspect a thermal intermittent in one of the ignition related components, such as the ignition control module, coil, or distributor hall-effect sensor. I had a similar problem in an '84 900S, which ultimately turned out to be the hall-effect sensor.
