EA falcon. Heating problem??

Hi, im new to the forum. I apologise in advance if i've posted this on the wrong section of the forum.

I've got a 1988 EA falcon and have had it since new.
For some reason it turns itself off when it reaches a certain temperature. When this happens i have to give it a 10min rest to cool off a bit, then it's good to go again.

I was wandering if anyone might know what the problem is, or if anyone has had a similar problem????? I've taken it to workships who deal with electrics of a car and not one seems to know the problem.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

By turning itself off, you mean the engine shuts down??

If so, i would lean towards the modulator on the dizzy.

yes, the engine shuts down, it loses all power.
I'll give you're suggestion a go, I'm pretty sure you've hit the spot with this one.
