if you have electronic ignition, and the alternator is going bad, those are 
pretty much the symptoms.  ask me how I know . . .

We have been driving my wife's TR 250 through Ohio for the last week.  It 
has been running great until we stopped for gas.

It started out fine, but as we were pulling on the highway, it didn't have 
any power and then died.

I found a vacuum hose that had come out I put it back in and it ran fine 
while we drove a short distance to a restaraunt.  But then, we we got onto 
the highway, we drove about 3 miles and it ran out of power and dies again.

Hoses were still in place.  I replaced the fuel filter, checked 1 diaphragm. 
It was okay. I thought if only 1 was bad, it probably would not die. The 
fuel filter was full of gas and seemed to let the gas through.

Oil pressure was good. doesnt'seem to be electrical.

So, I have 2 questions.  1) Any suggestions on what it might be?

2) Any suggestions for a shop in Hannibel, MO?
