nope... no vacume hoses running to the distributor on this one. or are they located someplace else?

aside from the sparkplug wires there's only a couple other wires coming off of my distributor... one looks like it may be a ground, the other has some sort of connector on it and is pluged into something else. no hoses or anything to speak of otherwise.

i just checked it again, looks like i'm dialed in at 8 degrees advanced. is running great.

if i was running okay at 12 degrees... should i keep pushing it up until it starts to ping?

i'm quite the timing neophyte, so i've no idea if more is better here or if the 8 to 10 is the sweet spot with respect to mpg's.
