You should use full manifold vacuum for your advance. This will give you better fuel mileage, and performance.

Seriously? I swore it was for timed. Will it make it more "crisp" in the pedal at cruising speeds?

Yes

When you "give it more throttle" the vacuum advance will drop off. This helps to keep it from pinging, and in return, lowers the "heat" in the engine.

Oh my goodness... this started out as your standard run-of-the-mill basic timing troubleshooting... then UGH... all of this "old timers" versus "noobs" nonsense.

There always have been and always will be cranky people on this forum. That won't change.

And there will always be a search feature, a knowledge base, etc, but that doesn't mean people will use it wisely.

It's not about how old you are, or how much you know, it's about a passion for cars, engines, etc. etc.

Chill out everybody.

That's all, end of my rant.

On another note, good luck with your timing issue! get yourself a TDC checker tool (vented) and a cam degreeing wheel. Mark your balancer properly (mark the inner and outer rings so that you can check for slippage down the road). Time the engine for 36-38 degrees full advance, and go drive it. After you're done at the exhaust shop, then follow up and re-check the timing.

peace.

Again, the knowledge base. A fantastic article on why manifold vacuum is better than ported vacuum for most street driven engines. Do you know how to look something up in the knowledge base?
