We havent counted the flashes because we're driving.   

Ok, it just died again.  Stopped counting at 26 flashes.  No obvious codes.

No codes ?  go with your gut feeling on fuel supply then check the power from the battery to the ECM

When the stop engine light is on but not flashing, if you get out of the throttle completely for about 20 seconds the light will go out and power is restored.

Thanks guys.  Id be all over the skinner valve if it were a 2 stroke!   It's getting worse as I type.

Series 60 with a HT740.  I serviced the tranny about a month ago and the engine & tranny felt great.  Good power and smooth shifts (after i changed the filters and ATF).

Yes, the Skinner Valve for the fuel shut-off is the first thing to check. There are two, one for fuel shut-off, and one for fast idle.

You don't say what kind of engine/transmission. Assuming it is a Detroit 2 stroke, I am guessing screwy wiring related to the shut down system. Turn the shut down cylinder away from the lever on top of the governor for now. That happened to me once. It was wiring at the Skinner valve for the shut down.

I'm on Ian's band bus helping drive some long stints.  Here are the symptoms;

Cruising at any speed, the engine stop light comes on for 20 seconds and engine dies.
Sometimes restarts in gear on 3rd or 4th try.
Sometimes you need to shift if into neutral to get it to restart.
Stop engine light flashes during failed restarts.
Oil pressure and water temps normal during this process.
Low on power went light is off. 
Almost no power when light is on.
Engine shuts off when light flashes. 
Engine is mechanical but must have some working alarm stat
No smoke from exhaust at all.  Used to puff when starting off under full throttle.

*May* have started with the addition of fuel conditioner about 1000 miles ago. 

Open to suggestions.  Will have time to look for problems when we get to the next venue. 

Thanks!
