I think he is talking about the mallory dis.If it has a vac 750 it should have a smaller cam,lower rpm more vac,so yes I would run a vac can on the dis.

Unless it's a strip only car that spends it's life at WOT, go with the vacuum advance. Car will idle better, run cooler and save gas. Just get an adjustable can so you can set the all in point and total advance.

Thank you and sorry for the vague description. I thought vacuum advance conversion would have been self-explanatory speaking of a dist. that doesn't come equipped with that type of advance. Good job on the assumption, it will be a daily driver. I could not have asked for better answers than I got.
,Happy holidays to all
