Due to SOM's lo-tech ignition system (Neutral Safety Switch bypassed)
something unexpected happened. Key was not fully in run position, so
she cranked fine, but instantly died when ignition button (DPST) was
disengaged, and hitting the accellerator tto try to keep it alive only
Sucked fuel into the pipes.

Then Karl corrected the key position and tried again.
It sounded like a .44 Magnum out of a 4" barrel.
