76 Garelli Eureka Flex runs for 20 minutes then stalls.

76 Garelli Eureka Flex runs perfect for 20 minutes then stalls if I slow down. Has new carb, new spark plug, new condenser wired externally last night. Is it a failing coil?

When it stalls, you need to check for spark. Could be several things, but you have to eliminate spark first.

Did you unhooked or remove the old condenser when you installed the external one?

Re: 76 Garelli Eureka Flex runs for 20 minutes then stalls.

I left it connected inside because I don’t have a puller for the fly wheel yet. I read that the condenser fails in a closed circuit so I thought it might be ok. My next day off I’m going to explore putting the new condenser where it actually belongs or at least disconnecting the old one.

It usually starts again after a long cool down time. I’ll try getting it running again and when it stalls I’ll check for spark right away.

If it has a point cam wiper , be sure that the wiper is lubed .

There is a fix for anything.

Can you tell me what the fix would be for a swelling clutch?

A new clutch :/ I once had an NOI that acted very similar to this one... turned out to be both the flywheel and clutch side seals, I can’t stand the Garelli clutch design.

Re: 76 Garelli Eureka Flex runs for 20 minutes then stalls.

at least those rubber clutch pads are easy to change. I did mine with little to zero knowledge and i did it in about 45 minutes.
