What’s under that blue tape? Raunchy soldering will add resistance where you need clean connections. Start by redoing your wiring and use some proper solder and flux so that solder flows quickly easily—if you’re holding that iron too long, you’re burning stuff that needs to be clean. Then consider just starting over with an auto parts store (old school VW or Chevy—they’re not expensive) condenser (or Amazon, around $8) installed outside of the flywheel—again, good, clean soldering of your (re-)wiring and finished with heat shrink. BTW, I’ve bought condensers that were bad out of the box, so at least if it’s out from under the flywheel, you can swap it easily, make sure that’s not your problem. Come back with an update...
