Subject: Sudden engine stop

Hi guys I have an 83 99 GL. The car works just fine and have done so ever since I bought it in february, possible with a little too rich mixture (occasional smell of gas, and a somewhat low mileage pr. litre) However: It runs fine for about a kilometer or two, then it just dies on me. I have power and ignition, but it won't run. I wait for a minute or two, and it fires up like nothing happened. Then it just dies again. I have changed membrane in the carb, adjusted floater and replaced floater valve. (when it runs, it runs very smoothly and in my ears very nice) No gas smell, no sputter..... the carb's now in very good shape Could it be the timing module? or the distributor/cap? Any suggestions wuld be of great help, Anders
