    I thought all those motors were magneto ignition. The magnets of the flywheel produces all the voltage necessary to fire the spark plugs. The magneto ign coils were shorted to each other to kill the spark.

        One side of the coils should be grounded to a screw under the flywheel. The other side should be connected to one of the M terminals. Ditto for the other coil. Maybe your ign switch is putting voltage onto the coils?
