Johnny, it sounds like you have your mag on backwards. They only go on one way eh... well, they'll go on backwards, but will backfire like crazy... there's only one proper way they go on
And sometimes the woodruff key will only half shear, leaving the timing slightly off. So, sheared key or mag on backwards. Check them both out.
