Ok wait. The stator is screwed onto the engine case, it holds the three primary coils and the points. The flywheel (or rotor) is held onto the crankshaft via a single nut. I'm guessing you mean the nut for the flywheel was loose. Was the flywheel loose? If so, you may have sheered the flywheel key. The flywheel needs to be "clocked" to a particular position by that key. You should need a flywheel puller to get the flywheel off to access the points. Did you change the condenser? You can use a condenser off of just about anything.
