how does vacuum advance work?

i am putting a new dist in my car, an accel hei i was messing around with the spring rates on the mechanical advance and well i decided to figure out how the vaccum advance works, i started sucking on the cannister and it doesnt seem to advance the rotor, but a black wheel under the mechanical advance....and also the kit came with some plastic sleeves that go over the advance stop pin, they say its under the mechanical advance mechanism, but i cant find it, i put the sleeve over every single pin, it doesnt work...it seems to fit in a center hole on the mechanical advance between the mechanisim and the rotor.

WELL, I don't know if I love my truck THAT much.

Doing that may not advance the timing, but I'm sure your car likes you MUCH better now.

It will work when you have it installed, sucking on it that is.

Yeah you need those sleeves/bushings in the weights for them to move smoothly.

You'll need the dist installed before you can really tune it.
