I was actually posting for this guy who revived the dead thread.

You actually can file down the squarish ones to fit the circles, though I don't know if the count of them is the same.

Though, back to the OP.

It could be sparkplug, but I doubt it.

How are you wired? Optimally you want it like this.

Black CDI to Black Motor to Green Killswitch.
Blue CDI to Blue Motor to Red/Yellow Killswitch.
White Motor to WIRE CAP.

As well, take some dikes to your sparkplug wire - trim off half an inch off each end and screw them back in.
