The wind kept blowing out my flame and when I could get it going it kept making a scary ignition of something--inverted canister? Whatever-- the soldering irons did the trick.

The mysterious leak turns out to be coming from the master cylinder.

Datzen Mike, you were right. It wasn't the previous owner it was dumb me who accidentally put the alternator from my other parts stash of '80 720 parts. I put the stock alt on and it shuts off now.  Thanks again.

Good point--about the alternator providing the juice to keep it running. When the engine wouldn't stop I yanked battery cables, to no avail-- it kept running. Doing the inverse (disconnect alternator belt) is a good logical next step test I hadn't thought of. If battery power keeps it running then it's a wiring screw up. Thanks!
