Ok I went ahead and ordered a new coil. The guy at the dealership said his hunch is that it's shorted out internally and it may be ok now but when it warms up it fails. Dan-c, if I take the flywheel...

Yes you're right. I just checked online and they use CDI. So does that mean that taking the magneto off isn't necessary or could a dirty magneto still cause intermittent spark? Could a faulty CDI...

Navin, do you think that the flywheel, points, and condenser are ok since there is an intermittent spark? Yes the spark plug cap is pretty dry rotted.
