Default IHC LB - Wico or IHC mag more trouble-free?

I've got a 1 1/2-2 1/2 LB I'm going to start rehabbing and I need a new magneto. It has an H-1 on it but the cap is smashed and it sat out as a lawn ornament for a number of years and is trashed. Since I need a new mag and I'm pretty sure I could find a good mag for less than the cost to restore the one I have, which model was more dependable as I'm more concerned about reliability than a 100% concours restoration.

I would choose the H-1 over the WICO any day. The H-1 is more robust and parts are readily available.
