Timing - vacuum hose connected or disconnected?

For timing a distributor with a single hose vacuum - should the hose be disconnected and blocked or left connected?

Then timing set to 7.5 BTDC at idle?

Hose should be off and 7.5 Degrees BTDC is correct.
Assuming you have a 1600 TP engine that is...............
cheers mate- its actually a 1500SP, but i guess its pretty much the same
Hose should be off and plugged or it probably won't idle ;-)
