HELP Sputtering '80 Garelli VIP vertical motor. VIDEO

What could be the cause of this sputtering?

Stock moped

Got this with spark, but the spark was very weak and it refused to start.

Then I replaced the points and condensor, when I did, the coil that attaches to the condensor snapped, I unwound the coil one time and then soldired it all together, no spark.

I then replaced it with a new stator plate off of a running VIP that blew its bearings, got spark and runs, but sputters.

Exhaust is not clogged, gas tank is clean, I run an inline fuel filter, has a new float needle, new plug.

I'm stumped, here's the video:

are the points gapped correctly, .014-.018? is it timed, 23 btdc?

Ahh duh, improper timing most likely, thanks!

Is it definitely a timing issue? Second opinion anyone?
