I just drove up there past the sand bar yesterday and my engine stalled out, it wouldn't restart until an hour or so later. Could this be from overheating? It seems like my engine temp was running normal though. I'm leaning towards another problem with the electrical

Would it Crank?
Crank but not catch?
Did you have fuel?  Spark?

Yes it still would crank, fuel was pumping, did not check for spark, probably should have pulled a wire off to see

Was it a slow crank or a normal paced crank?

What ignition?

It's possible that it got too hot.

I was at the mouth of the river today and like I said seaweed across the whole channel. Are you just risking it and driving right over it with your jet or is there another way around it?

We ended up driving up to Pirates cove, launched there and drove south to the sand bar then stopped at Topock 66  for dinner on the way back. Ended up being a nice ride.

I have a prestolite distributor with a pertronix conversion, no computer module. I recently replaced the alternator with what I believe to be the wrong type. The last one I had had a big square box on the back, the new doesn't have that, it has a field wire connection which tells me that it has no built in voltage regulator. The old one had two wires running to it; a battery terminal, and not sure what the other wire is.
