should be within 12-24 degrees BTDC. Ideally about 18 on that setup, but that's my preference, others may argue differently.

alternately to just get close you should see some drilled spots on the outside of the flywheel in one spot. those are usually where the trigger is that gets picked up by the white pickup coil. so around when those drill spots pass over the little white coil is when it's sparking. it should be just before top dead center (make sure you're turnin the flywheel the right way so you're looking at it matching up BEFORE TDC) Anyhow that should at least tell you if you're close.
