Ignition Failure Caused By Connection Fault at 2000ft - 20 miles From Home

EDIT 7/14/2015: I FOUND THE CAUSE of the failure. It was NOT the ignition system itself, it was one of the two wire terminals which lead to one of the ignition coils which actually broke. The wire has a spade type terminal on it. This terminal physically broke in two due to vibration. So nothing on the ignition or the engine failed at all! Technically speaking, it was incorrect installation, because this wire was not secured properly within a couple inches of it's connection, and ALL wires will fail eventually due to vibration if not secured properly! My Hirth 3202...
