    This motor was running great. Just had it serviced and we didn't have a problem one at first. Then we were running it and it died at idle and wouldn't restart. Got it running again the next day when we were set to leave for our next port and all was well for about 20 minutes. It died and tried to run a couple of times but would only run for a minute or less.
    After that it would only run for a minute or less and then stop even at full throttle.

    Any suggestions on where to start?
