I have Tomos Colibri T12, year 1965.
I want to change the condenser, because there is spark between contact points (they are new) and there is sudden loss of power when moped warms up.
There are two types of condensers:
-the one to be soldered (by default on this moped) - 0.2uF
-the one with thread - 0.17uF
I have white magneto (aluminium?), some Tomoses have black magneto. I think the default for black magneto is the condenser with the thread.
My question is - can I put in the 0.17uF condenser? Will it damage the contact points? I want to avoid soldering so I don't want to use the firs type of condenser.
I tried to test the condenser with a multimeter (see the photo). It always shows "1" -> does it confirm that the condenser is damaged?
I can see also there is no continuity.
