Condenser or Coil at fault?
One simple test may prove which is at fault.
When the fault occurs, take off the distributor cap and with the ignition on just flick the points. If the spark is small and bluish the condenser is OK if the spark is yellow/orange and very flashy the condenser is at fault.
Condenser failure is often indicated by burning of the points and/or poor starting.
When they fail altogether the engine will not run at all!

There are two options of condenser
Option 1: Facet Condenser, these are Italian made condensers which have been tried and tested and have a excellent reputation for reliability. These are now of limitied availability.  43mm long (end to end including thread and nut, 16mm diameter)

Option 2: A new condenser that has been tested to the same standard as the above condensers.  (47mm long end to end including thread and nut, 16mm diameter)
