If new plugs don’t show improvement then i remember my dad who was an oldschool machinist at allischalmers telling me as a kid never crank them without plugs connected to wires. Some people accidently can when doing compression check,etc. that can blow cdi. Multitester could verify. I’ve had one in my day give a weak spark instead of flat out fail.
