DT175 woes

I just scored a '79 DT175 for 50 bux, cool

I finally got it to go and it even idled, but now it wont start, backfiring and kicking back, it even broke the kickstarter as well as causing serious bruising to my favorite leg.

I found that the plate under the flywheel was loose, so that threw ignition the timing, but no matter where I set the timing, I cant get the marks on the flywheel to line up with the ones on the case.

Also I have two flywheels, and two stator? plates and they are all different, for example, the pulser coil on one is in a differnt place, and if you line up the keyways on the flywheels the timing marks are different, has anyone got any tips?

Can anyone fix me up with a new kick starter?
