need spark pickup coil

Had a issue with my 1984 1200. It just stopped running they finally determined it was the left spark pick up coil. When they went to order the part they were told it had been discontinued. Does anyone have any suggestions. Thanks

egine shut off

I was driving the other night and the engine just shut off. No spitting or sputtering just shut off. It set for an hour started up and drove 2 miles and stopped at stop light and it shut off again. There is no juice between relay and fuel pump when it shuts off. Can anyone help?
