Default Wico EK Magneto

Hello every one
Recently got a new condenser and points for my wico EK Magneto found on my Massey Harris type 2 stationary engine we got it running and it ran good for about 2 minutes until it died upon further inspection I found that there is no longer any Spark the adjustment that keeps the points set properly became loose and is no longer set right we fought and fought with it trying to tighten up but we have no idea how to keep it tight without messing with adjustment how can I do this with other than using Loctite or something like that
Thanks

There should be a small lock washer for the movable contact and the nut locking it to the screw.

Would you possibly be able to get a picture I was pretty stupid when I took it apart and didn't take a picture of all of what I had or the way it properly went together

I bet if you get on You Tube and search Wico EK magneto you will find many that explain and show this. I think a guy named Shop Dog has some really good ones
