First post here for me...Hello Ya'll.
Long ago I was told that a condenser can have a fail mode that happens with heat increase. At the time, I had a 650 Triumph that wuz driving me nuts with one cyl. cutting out every time I went somewhere. Changed the condenser, never had another licka trouble. From that day on, I've been a believer.
I am also a certified electrical idiot, so I have no idea why this is so.
Good luck with it and let us know. (+1 on dial indicator timing)
