Default Mogul Jr. Accurate 'M' Mag Issue

My Accurate 'M' magneto fires sometimes and sometimes not. Changing the mag timing in the gear ,enshrined or trip timing makes no difference timing is just as in the owners manual. Thinking the magnets are just a little too weak causing the inconsistent spark or maybe the contact on the commutator is too worn or both. So any thoughts appreciated. Kevin

Have you run the engine on a battery and coil to rule out the mag in cas it's an ignitor problem? The commutator may be dirty or the brush worn. Rob

Rob, igniter works fine on battery and coil. The brush on the commutator does appear worn. Commutator itself looks fairly clean. Thanks.
