Good point, BigBlue!
borntofli, remove the mag cover and be very sure that there is no water inside there.
Most engines won't tolerate even a bit of moisture in there. They are cheap and finicky.
It is highly recommended that folks seal up the mag to prevent any water from getting in there. You need to use RTV silicone to seal where the wires exit the front of the engine, both where the wires exit the wire sheath and where the retaining nut fits into the case.
I recommend using Hylomar to seal the cover gasket.
