As you have seen the 930 dizzy does not have a vacuum advance. It also does not have a boost retard. For the 2 pot units one pot is a vacuum retard (at idle) and while the second pot is actually a vacuum advance, but the performance function does not allow advance due to the signal being positive pressure. What you end up with is vac retard at idle, vac/mechnical advance at cruise, and mechanical advance only on boost.
You can test all of this with a vac pump, an air compressor, vac/boost gage and a timing light while your engine is running from 1000rpm - 4000rpm.
