Update, ok f- bird I have 26* initial with 10* mechanical advance now. I have a vacuum guage plumbed into the car to map varying rpm, I have the crane adjustable vacuum advance can and limiter plate. Here's where I'm stuck, how does the plate fit under the inner screw by the rod? I cant seem to find an orientation that has enough room, looks like the can fits perfect but the limiter plate is too large for msd pro billet 8361 dist. Anybody get this plate to work? Cheers Tim.

EDIT- Does it look like a GM points unit?
Just fyi if you are referring to Idle vacuum 7-10" with that much cam is normal and does not affect the vacuum advance... driving at cruise speed say 40 mph with a vacuum guage to ported vacuum (light throttle) you'll see 15-18 inches (above 2500 rpm) you will then be above cam overlap issues the allen wrench you got in the box will adjust the advance stop built into that distributor Good fuel and conservative timing will keep you're motor intact ...TT

Don't know why my post was quoted in that it has nada to do w/your response, but just FYI this thread is way old, I'm guessing the OP's issues have been resolved by now....
