So the td6 sputter and dont run full bore on gas. So last night I took my little brass hammer and gave the mag a tap. It purrrrrred to life! Did that 3 times I tryed starting it. Now if you do that it I assume it loses sparks and dies. So I'm thinking mag problems. Any thoughts?

 I am not a mag guy, but do you have a known working one you can swap? (My TD6 (1954) had a distributor.) Or put a distributor on it from one of your other IH machines? If you can do under carriages swaps this should be a piece of cake!:)

I’m not familiar with the mag you have . I would assume that the tap shifted a somewhat off center armature. 👀🤷‍♂️ 

That allow for more magnets 🧲 to charge up the coil / condenser. 👀🙏👀

file points and reset . I think it something simple. But which 🤷‍♂️Good luck 

magneto are very reliable in my opinion. Something is borderline
