When I was a kid they had a raffle for one of these at our local grocery store. They had it on display for a while and I would just stand there and drool. It is where my watersports love blossomed.
 
Just an observation. But those electrical components look just like the Vintage Arctic Cat snowmobile components!

Good eye! My only fear is interchanging the parts and causing an electrical mishap. I have considered purchasing similar parts that appear to be interchangeable, but do not know if it is worth the risk.

I am glad it brings back some good memories. Even with it sitting in my driveway, I always end up getting a few people passing by that comment "I remember those!" or "I have not seen one of those in years!"

Always puts a smile on my face!
 
Went ahead and made a new gasket for the flywheel/mag cover. The original ripped in just one spot.. just my luck.

Goal this weekend will be to get the fuel leak under control and have her running on the hose for a short time. Here is the area that is giving me the issue. It seems that when it is screwed in all the way, the engine will start for a few seconds and then die. But when I loosen the screw, it will stay running but leak fuel everywhere..

Is the Nippondenso 070000-0640 CDI pictured above the original cuyuna CDI with 7 wires and the replacement has only 6 wires? Does it have the same part number on the replacement? Any idea what vehicle the replacement came out of?

Yes, the Nippondenso 070000-0640 CDI is the original. The replacement only has 6. Not sure if it is the same part number or the vehicle the replacement came out of. Maybe the CDIs are more universal that I originally expected?
 
If the new CDI has a green wire and the same part number, I`m betting its an artic cat snowmobile cdi. http://www.vintagesnow.com/Arctic_Cat_files/1979.pdf
Unfortunately, no green wires. But I would not be surprised if I could interchange parts.

I have no problem installing a new kill-switch, but only concern is where to incorporate the new wiring and whether I should use an OPEN or CLOSED kill-switch. Here is a universal OPEN switch I found online. Would it be as simple as wiring the kill red wire to my lone red wire coming from the stator to the CDI and then the black to ground?

While figuring out my kill-switch predicament, I started cleaning up the little things. The weather stripping around the hood was in rough shape - not surprised after 33 years. Decided to remove it and purchase a new strip with 3M backing. Here is how it is going. Trying to figure out how to remove the remaining rubber.

Snagged the part number. It has been a while since installing and didn't recall there being one. Took the electronics apart again today just to make sure. CDI part number is 01-143-22 with 2018 underneath it. I take it that is the year it was put together/tested?
