the coil isnt behind the flywheel. it should be right above it. try resetting spark gap on both the plug and coil. use a gift card or credit card to space in between the coil and flywheel. do this when the magnets are right under the coil.

your flywheel is on a keyway. a gentle pry with a screwdriver behind it, and a gentle tap on the crankshaft will knock it off the key. be sure to put the flywheel nut back on when doing this so you dont damage the threads, so screw it on just a little. you shouldnt need to remove the flywheel though.

good luck
