Default Onan 4ky Backfiring

Well I was working on this unit in a horse trailer. They ran it two days at the San Antone stock show then it wouldn’t start. Went trough the carb a couple of times and known good spark plugs spark was a little off. It was a real low backfire finally pulled the unit and installed a magneto coil and it ran perfect. Now a fellow is telling me that part of the mag goes out and it gets out of time. Makes sense to me now.
