Good you posted the solution that worked for your snags. That will be helpful for other folks with same troubles.
...by the way...
Next time you have trouble check the quality of spark before just changing the condenser - if the spark is not bright blue and snappy then it for sure is the condenser - otherwise it is other issues.
Spraying crap around the union of casings and fittings usually just wastes time and effort and rarely reveals leaks, and will never reveal a leak at a crank seal because it can not reach where the seal is, best to give a leak down test.
