I've been turning this over and over in my head for the past 15 minutes and think I've got it figured out. With the distributor installed (pretty sure per the FSM) and the distributor body slot centered on the bolt hole in the block, the timing was retarded. By turning the distributor body CCW as far as it could go, I could go past TDC and get it advanced to only 5* BTDC. So to get more advance (and more adjustment range within the ~28* of the slot) I think I need to reinstall the distributor one tooth CCW, so that the rotor, which spins CW, gets to the cylinder #1 position on the distributor cap sooner (more advance). Does that sound right?
