    You could keep the ignition key off and the sparkplugs out, andkick it over multiple times until you have oil pressure. Then install the sparkplugs and hit the starter.

    Do you think that when “under load” it is on the mains, and as you close the throttle it is on the needles?

    When the OP hot wires the starter relay, the starter relay is functional.
    The starter relay can activate the starter.
    The Starter motor can rotate the engine.

    If that kill switch is fubar, it won’t pass those 12.6ish volts on to the starter button (and starter relay), or on to the coils.
    Might be worth isolating the kill switch and With the ohm meter...

    Does the fuse blow if you check volts to ground with the meter turned off?
    Or does the fuse blow if you just probe the fuse clip with a non-metallic probe?

    You get that “pop” because the coil was charged up and you broke the coil circuit. When that coil field collapses a spark is discharged. Doesn’t matter if your key switch breaks the circuit, or an...
