Welcome to M&M
As a rule, most Mallory distributors have 12 degrees advance in them. Double that and you get 24 degrees in the distributor. Add the 10 you have on the crank and you have a total of 34 without the vaccum.
They all come with a plastic "curve key" that is used to tailor your advance and rate.

Write to Mallory/Mr.Gasket for a curve key and have them mail you one. They are very good that way.
