Absolutely.  The slots in the plate give quite a lot of movement relative to
the block, more than enough for any timing adjustments if the clamping plate
is positioned correctly on the distributor.  It is very easy to overtighten
the clamping bolt, and repeated use is usually the cause of deforming the
base of the distributor which renders it scrap.
