removing the flywheel

This method has never failed for me, it's even worked where I've broken the puller. You can take a coat hanger, bend small hooks on either end with pliers, bend the entire thing in half, and hook each end of it in either the holes in the flywheel if there are any, or the edge of it if there is a big enough space between it and the engine case. Now, support the moped with one foot and pull on the coat hanger while hitting the crankshaft end with a hammer. It's best to keep the nut on, but so that it's flush with the end of the crankshaft, to avoid mangling the threads. I used this on a Torrot engine, which I'm told is the same as a 103, with the same symptoms you're describing. Adjusting the stator plate did nothing for me. I'm pretty sure in my engine and possibly yours that it needs NEW points and condensor. There were a few engines that I fooled with engines for hours, thinking the points and condenser are fine because I cleaned them, but the new points were what they really needed.
