Default electrical shock from muffler

hi,total newbie here ,trying to get a gi going...i think it is early eighties. any how,had the cart running last summer,then it died....would not turn over.so,it sat all winter.

pulled it out to have a look and discoverd the red wire on the starter had broken off. i repaired the wire and the motor now turns over fine,but will not start....appears to be no spark.

when i pushed the accelerator with my hand and touched the muffler with my other hand i got a shock that pulsed like ignition ...removed the coil from the motor and still getting the same shock.

can anyone give me an educated guess as to why this is happening?

There's four wires coming out on the bottom of the fan side make sure they haven't rubbed off the coating and shorting out to motor

Anyone know if early 80s Yamahas used points still? I had a problem like that on one of my earlier points carts before I converted it to an HEI.
