Hello all, I may be somewhat oldfashioned but I actually carry a spare 6V Optima battery when I take any of my old cars out (not one for each of course). I have used it on the odd occasion, maybe six times in 20 years, but always on someone else's vehicle. It certainly sounded like a supply problem such as a loose terminal, etc. to grind to a halt so suddenly. Even if the battery is dead, the generator will provide the ignition voltage. It is why you can bump start a generator vehicle when an alternator vehicle will not as the generator vehicle does not need exciter current to generate voltage. Peter T
