Peugeot cutting out

My 104 is cutting off as if it has a fuel flow issue. Just short 1-4 second bursts of healthy running with complete loss of power inbetween.

I've cleaned the shit out of my fuel system, and I think the problem is electrical. I know that when a condenser is dying, it generally will only work at high RPM's. This is sputtering regardless of any variance in RPM.

It is possible that my point gap has worn down since I replaced them this winter. I've put a few thousand miles on the bike this summer.

If the point gap is worn down significantly, could that cause the spark to "arc" between the points? It does this sometimes.

I'll be working it out tomorrow, but i'm just hoping for more ideas from other people before I get to it.

La Resistance!
