Most two strokes I've had anything to do with start (but not always run) better with a bit more advance. I would be putting it to what the manual says and try that.

I think you may have an air leak somewhere in the intake.

This is what to look for on leaking two stroke crank seals.

Looks nice job.
I have used the 'big drill' and socket many times on a Villiers engine. The socket will usually just fall off when the engine starts, if not stop engine and try again.

I have never seen inside a Terrot, but I think you may have that spring upside down. Looks like the ends go into the scollaped bits on the large round plate, but I could be wrong.

Looks to me like a bike engine taken from the frame and modified to drive something like a 'Hargan' saw or maybe a water pump with a pulley fitted to the shaft extension, and the cowling used for cooling the now stationary motor.
This was done a lot in Australia when things were tough and money short to 'get the job done'. One of my uncles took the engine from a pre WW1 belt drive Bradbury and used it to power a car generator to power the car headlights in his milking shed. He also turned a Villers 7F lawnmower engine into a horizontal shaft engine to power a saw bench that I still use to cut firewood.

I like the 'budget flat pack'!

I have seen the single inserts on fleabay, and not real expensive.

Don't know about the seat, could be a bit hard on your bum.
