Stator plate position

I pulled the flywheel on my p125x to switch out the points and condensor and found the stator plate to be out of place according to the Haynes manual. The manual says the points should be at the 2 o’clock postition while mine are sitting at the 10 o’clock postition. Will this make a difference? The beast runs although it doesn’t like to start hot. (reason for new condensor).

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks!
