Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. It sounds like the air gap on the coil isn't set right . Try this , take a business card , put it between the coil and flywheel magnets , let the magnets pull the coil to it with the business card in between them , then tighten the coil down and turn the flywheel to get the card out , this will get the air gap set and should have it timed right
