Tomos engine problem

ok here is the problem It wants to run in reverse. it is a 78 A3 stock with a 12v internal coil from treats. Just now I double checked the points .40 @ tdc and the timing is within specs. It started right up and excellerated and started to go in reverse. It will actually start easier in reverse. What am I missing? What did I do wrong?

your stator is off 180 degrees?

@ 2mm BTDC it should have a gap of .35

if you rebuilt the engine the kickstart may be assembled wrong, whereas the engine is running forward and the transmission is making it go backwards.

you spun your flywheel on the crank. torque it doen better next time.

lol theres actually a 350 dollar tomos near me that does that... if its only the stator being 180 degrees off, I really wouldn't mind offering 200 and picking it up.
