This is a first for me.
Set the warmup lever, choked it, and gave her a pull. She lit up and BANG. The magneto cover shattered and she quit.
The guys on JohnsOldMercury attributed it to fuel vapor build up in the magneto being ignited by the points. They say its rare but happens and this is why Kiekhaefer designed the CDI boxes.....another 160.00 bucks in parts....

Had similar problem on a generator army surplus, drilled small hole in cover at the bottom and one in the side this let the vapor purge itself in between runs.
