1980 Peugeot 102sp timing issues

tristan holaday /

Hey, so i have had a 102sp U3 for probably 4 years now and it has barely ever run. Initially it ran but not very powerfully. i thought it was the carb for a long time, then i realized the points were bad. so i switched out the points, and now the frickin thing won't start. I'm pretty sure it's a timing issue, but i can't figure out how to set it properly. When i first switched the points, i was quite ignorant about engines and did not think twice about marking the stator and flywheel so as to put the flywheel on the same again. But should that ultimately matter? There aren't any timing markings on the flywheel that i know of, and i don't have the service manual. What do you think?

The points should start to open when the piston is 1.5-2 mm before top dead center.

Thanks for the links. I've tried doing what the Timing Guide link talks about, even got some help from some mechanically inclined family, but it didn't work. I'll try again though, never know. Thanks Rebel for the link to the manuals, i've been trying to find a service manual for the 102 for a long time.
