Welcome to the forum, when it won't restart, Have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs, if you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. How long since a tune-up?

I checked for spark, none! So I go an start it 1 hr. Later it starts, runs for 10 min. Then cuts off abruptly. Coils or ig. Cont. Mod.?

If you have bypass ignition, the ignition module controls spark during cranking, does the crank sensor plug into the ignition module? Possibilities, crank sensor-- ignition module-- wiring circuits. Any trouble codes?
