77 sachs foxi gt, should of left well enough alone?

was running, but not quite good enough, so I thought I would time it, took of the flywheel, cleaned up the points, put on a new felt pad, cleaned up the area and slipped the flywheel back on by lining up the wood ruff key tighten it down, rotated to top dead center (O mark with casing mark) then went to adjust points, and this is the part that has me going what?? the window where I should be able to adjust points is rotated to about the 9:00 position so I can't do the points because I can't get to the points when it is at TDC, the points are at about the 10:30 position. its like what is going on is this possibly the wrong fly wheel? am I missing something? is there a work around?....please help
