CORRECT: But all that is required is to check whether there is spark right after it quits. This is so rare that in 50+ years of being a mechanic I have never seen it as stated with hydraulic lifters. How do you compress a working hydraulic lifter in a reasonable time? Also the purpose of hydraulic lifters is to eliminate the valve lash.Also how does the machine work apply when he says nothing about the engine being worked on?? Also if this problem shows up on a engine with solid lifters(old IH) it will usually only cause low compression and/or a miss, not the above problems. Quick reply would still be carb in some way if there is spark when the engine quits.
