My 64 Allstate came with the stator removed (read, buggered). I installed new points, condenser and an HT coil. Since the stator is mounted behind the flywheel, is there a method to get the timing "in the ball park" before setting the points? Or can you somehow adjust the stator position with the flywheel installed? Thanks.

The "ballpark" would be to position them so the adjusting screws are about in the middle of the adjustment holes when you mount the stator. There's no way to accurately set the points gap or timing without the flywheel on, because the gap - and the timing - depends on the position of the lobe and the magnets on the flywheel.

Also, do not be tempted to run the motor without the flywheel fully torqued. You can damage the woodruff key and/or the shaft.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking. I was hoping someone had a better solution than flywheel removal trial and error.

If you remove the stator, there is a blob of white locktite-like substance on the back and on the case. I assume that it is from the factory and shows where the original set point of the stator is/was.
