I am not sure the function of the ports on my 79 930 distributor as well.
The port on the "right side" (facing engine from back of car) on my distributor is not connected to a hose, ie it is open to atmosphere.
I pulled a vacuum on the can on the other port facing away from the engine and it did nothing.
This port has a vacuum line from the throttle body atached to it, but I assumed this was the vacuum advance connection, and the other port that has no hose is the boost retard, am I wrong?

thanks
