Ignition Timing

I want to check my timing and adjust (if necessary) so would like to know your procedures for checking timing (I have a Euro model).

In the manual I have it says to check timing (for a 930/66):

USA 1 +/- 2degs at idle (950rpm +/-) Vacuum Hose CONNECTED

Euro 2 +/- 2degs at idle (950rpm +/-) Vacuum Hose CONNECTED

And to adjust timing:

USA 26 +/- 1deg BTDC at 4000rpm Vacuum Hose DISCONNECTED

EURO 29 +/- 1deg BTDC at 4000rpm Vacuum Hose DISCONNECTED

I want to check my vacuum unit on the distributer is working properly so would like to know how you guys adjust your timing and if there are any hints and tips to getting it just right.
