There aren't as many distributor versions as there are opinions on how they work (which can be found in the shop manuals). This is the distributor I use in my car. The early Euro distributor is very simple having vac retard (that can be blocked) and mechanical advance.
Yes if this is the distributor you have then that is the only function that the vac pot serves. If in doubt reference the manual and bench test the unit as Jacob suggests.
