Putting a mag in the airing cupboard will not fix anything, but might lead you to believe its fixed as it will dry out any damp in the windings. But then after fitting back to the engine and run for about 20 min it will die again.

Easiest & quickest solution is to check the coil, if it is open circuit or dead short the only fix worth doing is a rewind.
