'78 Moby V50, stall issue.

I've replaced the condenser (externally), she starts better, restarts better when hot also.

NOW my issue is, she runs great for a few miles, fully warmed, then can die. Won't restart until seemingly cooled down.

Thinking coil, gets hot and faulty?

Just got a 6v/12v spark tester, if I can get her to stall again maybe I can verify spark quickly.

I'll take the carb apart again anyway, but I'm not expecting a fuel issue.

Original 42 year old coil, 575 original miles,

No visual signs of degrading on the coil or wire.

I did not open the magneto to replace the condenser for obvious reasons, but, can the old condenser which is still in the circuit cause trouble? Didn't see anything about that when investigating the condenser replacement part.

ANY help appreciated!
