I am about to replace the old plug.coil leads on the beast.
I pulled the lead of the Dizzy, which I think is a dual point Mallory and, once 
again, wondered about the lack of a vacuum advance/retard mechanism.

If I am right, the drop in vacuum when you put your foot down, results in the 
vacuum unit letting the dizzy timing retard to help the engine get some 

SO where does my 'Oomph' come from when there is no vacuum unit and I 
put my foot down??  Or doesn't it matter!
Does it mean I have to limit my maximum advance at high revs?

Just wondering.... I'm not a Lead-foot but I do like to drive in a manner that 
doesn't betray my age  <Grin>
