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.
I have an '85 Euro and I've always timed it like in RED here. I used that as a little insurance against detonation or a tank of bad Gazz. I don't much care what it is doing at Idle.
