Jim glad to hear you managed to get the flywheel off. The Villiers coils do have a reputation for failing. If replacing the coil I would recommend spending the extra and also replace the points and condenser you will then be sure of a good spark. Corrosion between backplate and various components bolted to it can also be a problem as this is the way they are earthed.
