Default Was fast, now slow

Gentlemen,

The '85 has been running great. Out of nowhere today, speed went from 20+ mph down to just about nothing. Even though I didn't monkey with anything, timing is always a concern. I have been adjusting timing and points all afternoon with no success. Carts is running, just not as strong as it had been.

Fuel delivery is great.

Here is, what I believe to be an issue but I am not sure how to rectify it:

While adjusting timing, I noticed that, with the engine running, I put a screwdriver on a point plate screw, I got some sparking from behind the plate (I think) and the engine suddenly jumped to maximum rpms. I was able to replicate this many times. It seems as if the screwdriver served to better ground the circuit but I am not sure what is causing this problem though let alone how to fix it.

The manual mentions that "excessive sparking" near the points means a bad condenser. I am getting some sparking at the points but I am not sure I would call it excessive. All the same, the condenser in this cart is new and has all of 15 mins. on it.

Anyone have any thoughts on what I should be looking for?
