I gave the owner a Husky 285 but he needs the other Stihl flywheel to match up. SEM vs Bosch.

What I could find about it is on my micro films so I can't copy it .

If that contraption is an 056  what a can of worms that can be .They list about three different ignition systems and one of them is points .The good part about that if that's the case is not too much goes wrong with them .Maybe a bad condenser or corroded point contacts .

If it is in fact points they give the setting  measurement before TDC opening which you use a dial indicater to do .I magine it would be just as simple to use a timng wheel set for 26-28 degrees ahead opening .

Lawdy in addition to all that it shows the recoil starter as being Stihls version of a Fairbanks -Morse type like used on the antique Homelites .To say a monumemntal pain in the buttocks would be an under statement
