Gained enough information from the site you suggested to make a decision to change the control module. The ignition was not out long enough to preform the test required test to determine specific the cause ofspark loss. Engine has 3 to 4 hours without a problem since the module was changed. Prior to changing module run time was in minutes. Thank you Norman
