ok fly the mail boys

Hmm maybe there is a way change timing with variable voltage on this fancy blue oval distributor rather than twisting it.
The white wire is a timing retard, there might be a way to use it to start and/or use to drive home from the bogs if the timing is locked out, or if the initial timing was too much for the starter to crank the engine hot.

There's a couple links, wiring diagrams etc. here I threw together earlier (until I can research it better, and/or someone else adds more to the page ) that may be of some use.
