'65 Mustang Surges, then dies and refuses to start.?
So, I bought a '65 V8 289 Mustang that is a bit rough around the edges, but in good condition. The engine's very clean, and was rebuilt but it wasn't the best job ever. Some of the parts are going out. I believe my problem lies in the Starter Coil,
The engine will begin to lightly surge after driving for about 20~30 minutes, the more you drive it the more noticeable the surging becomes. Eventually the car just stops. The engine cuts out, and refuses to turn over, and the more you try it drains the battery, giving you a dead battery. My first thought was the Alternator, but my dad suggests it's the coil. He says they go out like no tomorrow on mustangs of that year.
So my question is, is the coil a safe bet, and is there some way i can stop this from happening??
