I have an EL Ghia and it randomly stalls, it used to do it real bad and wouldnt turn back on for a few mins, but once i replaced the fuel filiter, no prob. now, about 2 months later its doing it again, BUT if i turn the key off and wait a few seconds - it fires back over - usually happens about 35-45mins after i turn it on. Usually it coughs about 1 min before it stalls.

Any ideas???

could it be a dirty fuel line in the tank to the in-tank pump?
could it be the dizzy on the way out?

these are just things i am writing as i think them up on the spot now.

any help much appreciated

thanks alot
