As I remember, when I applied vacuum to the canister (sucked on it) the magnetic pickup turned counter-clockwise in the dizzy. The firing order is 1-6-2-4-3-5 going counter-clockwise. So, if the pickup blade was lined up with plug #1 with no vacuum, applying vacuum would move it closer to #6. This would cause the firing of the plug to be later than with vacuum applied. Wouldn't this be vacuum retard as Brian indicated earlier?
