I would set it just passed TDC to stop kick back and longenough for about 2 inches of travel on the fly wheel . I think that will be a good start and adjust from there .

It seems to me you would be better off trying to time your spark off the cam gear instead of the flywheel. You'd be sparking half the time and the battery would last longer. Just a thought. Every engine I've owned that used a buzz coil had one contact on the pushrod and another on the block with an indent on the cam to close them.
