As I put it back together, I checked the fire from time to time. When I put the late cover on the mag, it lost fire. The problem was a poorly positioned wire that shorted out when the last cover was installed.

Just had that exact same problem two years ago on an H-4 that somebody else had overhauled, all new parts will not overcome a shorted out lead.

Yes, would be interested in reading what you have. Have an H1 mag that's giving me fits. I'm sure it's something obvious, just not seeing it.
