This is an old MF1450 that has been sitting for 25 or so years. I have it running but have not used it for anything functional yet.
Anyhow. . . .. starts up and runs GREAT. Ammeter shows that it is charging. After running for about 15 minutes there is an audible click sound, ammeter goes to zero and engine shuts off. After sitting for 2 or 3 minutes, she will start right back up. Each time I start it back up; it only runs 5 minutes or so before it shuts off again.
Is there some sort of thermal switch somewhere?
