Question about the vacuum advance canister.

I have a distributor in my vehicle very similar to this.

I'm assuming the vacuum canister is very much a typical stock configured part, nothing fancy hear.

At what hg" level would a cannister of this nature start adding advance to the curve.

Is it correct that as vacuum drops the cannister adds less advance to the curve?

weathers gettin nice on the east coast help

Something NEW: Canister for Dis. Adv,?

I never used a Tank for the Dis.Adv.
When the throttle is pressed Quickly, the Manifold & Carb Vac. Port, Experience a Vacuum Force. The Dis. Vac.Adv. Plate Turns to advance the Dis. For the Increase of Fuel & Air Mix.

The Canister I got goes to the Vac. Operated Equip.( Heater Doors,Etc.)
The Brakes: Get the Vac. From The Intake. ( EXCEPT: My Tunnel Ram.)
So I Disconnected my Brakes. Ya-Huuuuu.
I'm going to use an Elect. Vac. Pump.

Add a Electric Oil Pump Aux.
&
Elect. Water Pump.
