Roger that. I will run a continuity test on the cap tonight after work.

Continuity and ohm test indicate no problem with cap.

In searching old threads the mag only shuts spark to one cyl under rare circumstances. I am now leaning toward a points alignment issue. Any other thoughts welcome.

Getting back to everyone who helped me out. The problem turned out to be points that were not adjusted EXACTLY. They were approximately .28 instead of .20. Once I got the points gapped properly, it started running just fine.

The mag is producing lots of spark. After I got the points adjusted right, I held the #1 wire in my hand with spark plug grounded to the frame. WOOOOOOWWWW!!!!! My entire arm will attest to excellent spark! lol

Billpa, I will post the results of my test tonight. But two different caps have the same problem with #1, so I'm thinking it's not really a cap issue.

A possible easy fix for this problem is switch out the magneto for a coil/distributor ignition I have. (See new thread I just started.)
