vacuum setting

On a lot of 460's you can pull the vacuum hose off the distributor and use an 1/8 allen wrench to adjust the vacuum spring tension to fine tune the advance curve.

Then of course is that big bug-a-boo, the 9* retarded timing gear/camshaft assembly and straight from Ford trying to make an "economy" engine out of that gas hog (of which I owned four, all of which received new timing sets)
