With all due respect to your Magneto specialist, could still be some partial breakdown of windings in either the coil or a defective condenser. Even though his work may be top notch, you can't get away from the fact that a magneto is an electrical/mechanical component. I do 90% of my own mag work (less winding my own coils) and I find that, most of the time, with a problem like this the problem lies with the coil. On these mags, the condenser is wound into the coil. |
If you can, test the spark strength with a test plug and then again after it is hot and compare the spark intensity.
Reach out to your Mag guy with assistance. I'm sure he is proud of his workmanship and if you suspect spark may be the problem, he will be as determined as you to resolve the problem.
