So as to not be another DenverCoder9 (https://xkcd.com/979/), I discovered the issue was actually corrosion on the stator connections. My charging voltage was low. After several hours on the trickle charger, it ran great!

I'm changing my coil wiring over the winter to run direct (through a relay) with higher gauge wiring.

Voltage is everything on this ignition. I have a theory that low voltage causes the CDi to retard timing, via that wire branching off the start circuit to the CDI. Pretty easy to check the theory, but never had time/energy to get it done.

I missed your 10-2-19 post. Problems with slides sticking can be the diaphragms and sometimes scuffing of the slide/slide bore, which can be polished smooth (vertical motion only) to ease the sticking.
