    OK, well its been a few weeks since the heli-coil fix and now the ignition is back to doing the same thing. After starting and driving a ways it starts cutting out, have to basically wiggle the key, and turn to off and on again to get a good connection. Anyone else ever had these kind of issues with the ignition?? Wish I could just yank the whole thing and put something more reliable in.

    Yup, and this makes the third time, before the pot metal clasps on switch would eventually vibrate loose....
