Yesterday, I went and bought a gallon of gas and tried to start up the DB with its new engine. It runs great, with the one exception, it is throwing sparks out of the shroud. I think I have the mag adjusted to close, and I will fix that this week at some point. I will have a video up in the near future, and it will be plowing by the end of next week!

I wish!! We still have a foot of snow ont he ground.  It'll be months before the frost is out of the ground enough for us to plow.

I'm coming in late on the story, and you may have a new muffler, but if its an old one, on every small engine rescue that has sat for years, it blows sparks.  I guess it burns the junk out of it.  After a good run it will usually clear itself out.

Well, I just went to the doctor and found out I have the flu, so it may be a while before I finish up on this project

The way I adjust mine, is take the plug so its easier to spin and roll it over by hand, and adjust the mag just so it doesn't drag.
