Stator alignment on B&S 12.5 HP OHV engine

Have been rebuilding my parents gummed up ride on engine...
I nnly know enough to be dangerous, so it  has been bit of a learning experience..
I did not pay attention to positioning when removing stator, so when  putting the it  back on, there is a couple of positions it appears it could go...
1 as shown in attached picture, but  it will
2  also fit with leads connected one turn ( ie one bolt hole position)  clockwise from current position.
Have read all the B& S  manuals i can download,  but none show stator alignment layouts..
can anyone advise correct positioning  or how to proceed?
Many thanks
Will

    That position appears to be fine as it gets out from the flywheel safely. It doesn't matter physically which it is bolted down other than getting the leads routed out without possibility of the flywheel snagging them.
     
    For me the current location appears to best.

    If the pigtail reaches the tractor harness you got it right. You also should be able to see a spot of gasket maker that was used to keep the wire away from the flywheel unless you thoroughly cleaned it off.

    Many thanks for all the answers...  so was just double  checking that  nothing on the stator affects the trigger points of the spark plug timing etc?

    The stator keeps the battery charged, it has nothing to do with ignition which is controlled by the magneto (coil).
