your dizzy is in the wrong position, you need to pull the dizzy out rotate the whole dizzy and slot it back in...

Would it be possible to do the dizzy rotation without removing the log manifold do you think?

yea, you can get the dizzy out without removing the manifold..

pull the dizzy cap and cap base off and you should be able to lift the dizzy up enough to rotate it,
