In the factory manual I have it has two measurements. One is Ignition Timing and the other is Ignition Timing Control.

Ignition Timing is set to 26 BTDC @ 4000 RPM with engine oil @ 80C

Ignition Timing Control is checked at 0 +- 3 @ idle speed of 950 +- 50 RPM (vacuum hose connected). It also specifically notes before proceeding to check Ignition Timing Control to set Ignition Timing correctly.

This would indicate that the Ignition Timing is set first to 26 BTDC with vacuum hose disconnected, THEN check correct Ingition Timing Control (pressure pot control) with vacuum hose connected. Not the other way around.
