In the Haynes maual on page 5-5 for the 79-93 mustangs, it say to retard timing by turning the distributor clockwise and advance by going counterclockwise. I am new but they have to be wrong. What is the deal??

i think that's backasswards...if you turn the dizzy c/c you'll retard the timing...regardless of the year-they all spin c/c

If you are standing in front of your vehicle looking down on the Dizzy and turn it clockwise you are advancing the time, C/C will retard it.
