Again, them engineers were dang smart!
Your post is very confusing.

The ‘83 dizzy has two vacuum lines. The retard and advance. Agreed? Your previous statement made it sound like retarding timing when increasing rpm is a good thing. The RETARD line doesn’t ADD advance. I don’t understand that logic at all. Letting off throttle is one thing, and I guess I can see where the retard would kick in when lifting off the gas, but retarding timing when increasing rpm makes no sense at all. Please educate me. You always want the advance vac line connected, which is not what we are debating.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.
