Fred, your engine is a 930/63 California 930?
For that engine there is an extra vac pot that retards at idle for smog purposes. The other vac pot works by preventing further advance in the absense of vacuum. In other words it cancels out the vac advance once the transition to boost occurs.
There was a thread a few weeks ago on this subject where out takes of the factory manual were included. The California 930 is rather complex with the CIS add-ons for smog control.
