Sounds like an Edic issue, remove the fuel control relay, give it and the plug a clean and check the fusible links, put it back together and see if the edic motor moves.

There is also a wierd phenom relating to the altenator brushes and this non stopping. Why i have no idea, but if the alt brushes are to short this happens. I had this same problem a couple years ago and sure enough i was told this and looked to find my brushes were to low and out of spec. Once replaced, it stopped for a long time. But it still does it once in a while, especially when it's hot outside. It's been written about on here before. I learned of it from Dan at 4wheel auto. Hope this helps.

$500!! If we wants to be a little red and keep that rig runnin' cheap, there's always the bicycle cable install through the dash that you can pull to turn the fuel off manually. I test drove a BJ42 with that setup once. Yeah, it was from Mission.
