Wednesday morning I started the engine with the intention of taxiing to check the brakes.  It ran rough and was shut down.

A broken magneto drive gear in a factory new Lycoming YIO-360-M1B engine that ran a total of less than 1.1 hours, with over an hour of that time on the factory dynamometer.  Fortunately Lycoming is footing the cost of repair.
