One of Mr. henry's better ideas, these front mounted beasts used a special
fixture for off-vehice adjustment, then install on the engine. A conventional
distrubitor machine is no good, because the thing is a vacume brake set-up
without a centrifugal advance plate. As I understand it the main issue is
sequenceing of the two point sets for the correct dwell angles. I've seen
pictues of the device, but the same photo said hard or imposible to come by. Ask
around at restoration houses, for an adjusting fixture, somebody must have one
