since smoke is coming from the magneto I'm thinking the seal was put in backwards this can easily happen since all three seals go in diferently the magneto seal goes in with the backing towards you like you would expect.The other seal for the clutch side is the oppisite the backing of the seal faces towards the inside if the crackshaft housing while the interior of that seal faces the clutch housing. BTW the clutch side seal is behind the bearing not in front.also the primary drive gear aka"front sprocket seal" the interior of that seal faces outward "the seal iternals are visible if you remove the sprocket".so you can see how someone could get confused and install it wrong and if it is it wont seal and exhaust will come out the magneto and will cause you to burn to lean and posibly stall don't run it lean or you will seize.Jim.
