With posting the model and spec numbers off this engine there are a few on here that can post the part number and installation instructions.

Well that model number does not work for me, but I am guessing that you have a Tecumseh engine. The part you are referring to is called the lamination's and pickup the magnetic field from the flywheels magnets as they pass by. The damage you describe should not dramatically effect the operation. You can download a service manual here, although I am guessing at which engine you have.

Agree with 30 year, most likely not affecting operation due to slight separation. Replace points and condenser, set points at .20 and clean after installing by running lint free card stock, sprayed with carb cleaner and then a dry piece through. Most likely this will get you spark. Be sure coil wire is not grounding somehere while flywheel is off.
