Old School Electrical Wizard Needed

Gentlemen, I have a detailed post in the ENGINE forum. It is 68 Mustang 200 6cyl Stall Problem, under my jmacs53Willys name. As time allows could you please read and respond with your technical advice for things for me to check. I believe I covered the required info requested in your how to post electrical questions. I am no dummy with electrical things but have been told I get tunnel vision with some things and I believe this is one of them? Friday 11/14 is my day off and when I will to get back to the Mustang. If there is anything you can add that might be relevant to my inspections and testing, please feel free to advise! I'm 55 and have been working hands on American Rigs since 1964. I am a Chevy guy all the way and have hard wired my 53 Willys Wagon ground up without any problems EVER! This Mustang is absolutely all original and unmolested with most things underhood rebuilt or replaced to original specs. I assume this problem I'm having is something simple that I'm overlooking? Not being knowledgeable or too experienced with Fords has got to be it? Thanks John

John, the fact that your car runs for a short time then quits - and you're satisfied that this isn't a fuel problem - has me thinking it's the condenser.

As I posted in your other thread, try disconnecting the condenser to take it out of the picture and see if it runs properly.

Re-coil?

I have seen some old coils short out after warming up. If the condenser don't fix it, substitute in a different coil.
