I have seen a few occurances of this or similar issue here in the forum lately - partial or full loss of spark, shortly after one-way replacement.
I can suggest two possible causes (based simply on educated conjecture - I have no direct experience with this issue) IF there is correlation between the one-way replacement and lost spark - 1) scraping the stator across the flywheel during reassembly; damaging the windings so they either immediately or eventually short, or 2) mis-alignment of the stator wires where they exit the case, pinching wires together and as the insulation slowly flows , a short occurs. (a pinched wire often won't lose its insulation completey - the plastic often cold flows over time, eventually leaving bare copper. A pinched pair can often take significant time before they short together)
