Default Maytag Points

I'm in desperate need of the professional knowledge that comes from this forum. I'm in the process of restoring a model 92. My flywheel was cracked where it fits around the crank so I purchased one off ebay. Today, I started the process of transferring everything over to the newer one. When I attempted to remove the points, several of them slipped out from underneath the screws (both sets of points). Now I'm not sure how they go back together or how many are required on each side. Oh by the way, I know, I should of used a jig but I was impatient. Come on guys, don't laugh, help a newbe out. Thanks in advance to all who respond.

Here is a couple of pictures of some points on ebay right now. You should be able to see the lamination order in these. Good luck!

Heres an image thats a little brighter that might help. If the flywheel was broken not sure why you had to mess with the points in this fashion. Need your points properly positioned get it to me. I have the original factory points placement gage. Or catch me at a show if we get to the same ones. Maytag Mark
