I bought a MSD dist kit and it has full adjustment for the advance curve.
What RPM does the advance need to begin and how much total ? I think the limit is 28* mechanical . It starts easily w/ 12*initial.
10.5 to 1 w/781 heads,427 with 279*/290* Crane cam , QJ on alum intake -maybe 3310 Holley later, Hedmans ,3.31 rears.mostly street cruiser.
I will add a 6AL box with the dist. install also.
All new and haven't got enough miles to put it thru the paces yet with the original point dist

Some engines like ported, some like full time manifold vacuum. In any case, use the vac advance. Your engine will run better, and cooler.
