Puch maxi timing?

Does anyone know the correct timing for a 1977 Puch Maxi Sport? My moped is going very slow and shuts off after a minute or two. I think that the timing might be off but I'm not sure. It also makes a clanking noise that sounds like something in the engine is loose and it runs extremely rough in general. It was running fine a week ago. Any ideas?

Oh yeah, the head light is not turning on when I am able to start the engine. Could this all be related?

your magneto could have come loose or caught and gotten screwed up.

Sounds like the nut on the mag has came loose. This link will help on setting the timing. I used a multi-meter set on tone to know when the points are opening.

Here's the link for the timing.
