If you remove the magneto cover and look at the wiring inside, you'll see that the black wire is a ground. It is attached to the magneto with an eyelet terminal and the mag is attached to the motor case. I fail to see why you'd need a seperate ground wire unless you're going to use the white wire for a light. The seperate ground wire could then be used to complete the circuit through the lamp/s.
I'm not arguing with your instructions just stating a fact.
