I believe you set your timing at idle to 0* and mark the spot on 13mm distributor slot. Pull the distributor, lock it at full advance, and disable the vacuum lines at the pot. You can remove the pot and cover the hole with very thin sheet metal...some have used a cut section of beer can.

Reinstall distributor and align with the mark you made for 0* at idle. This should give you full advance at idle but be 6AL2 will pull out timing (retards up to 25*) per your setting retarding it to 10* BTDC or whatever works for you.

I'm sure there are other ways of doing this but this is how I understand it. Others will probably chime in.
