It sounds like it might be an ignition system failure. I would go ahead and troubleshoot the ignition system and see what you can get from that.

Bat good, alt good, starter good. will start when jumped and will stay running but when shut off it wont start again untill you njunp it off again.


Altenator good? Did you bother to check the diode in the altenator? If its blown it will not let the voltage regulator charge the battery. The only way to check this on the engine is to have it running. Take a volt meter and check the voltage while running. If 13.5 volts shows it may seem to be charging the battery right? Maybe not. That the probes from the volt meter and invert the probes from red to the negative battery terminal and the black probe and connect it to the positive terminal. While running if the same voltage shows the diode is bad. The diode prevents the current running in reverse. If running both ways no charge is getting to the battery
