But, there are times I have to leave it for more than 2 minutes. In that case I'll shut off the fuel petcock, pull the spark plug wire off the plug and then put it back on the plug withoug pushing it down for contact then cross my fingers while I go do what I gotta do.
The spark can jump across the very short distance between the boot and the plug when the boot is sitting over top of the plug like that. I had a boot that the terminal got ripped out of and I ran with that boot like that for quite awhile. Just sayin'.
