Tiara Open 454 shutdown
I would bet on the coil going bad. Especially with a crack around it. Coils will work for a bit and then once they get hot will break down and stop working. I had a customers forklift doing the same thing and one of my technicians put 8 hours and quite a few hundred dollars in parts trying to fix it awhile back. I asked him if he had put a spark tester on it and once we did the problem was obvious. Replaced the coil and everything was perfect again.

Always start with the simple things first, usually that's where it will be.

When the generator was installed, how was the fuel line run? I believe for a factory install, they have their own fuel connection at the tank.

Was it connected to the fuel system of the motor your having problems with? If so, you could have a loose connection and be sucking air.

Same problem, about 1800 hours on port, then at 2100 hours on star. Wiring to ignition relay started getting hot and messing with relay. Need wiring redone and new relays.
Both act like fuel problem but not.
Relay would show burn mark on connection, but not at first. Took 2 years to figure out first time.
