I apologize if this has been asked already, but I searched the forum and could not find any help. My vac adv canister is pointing directly at the back of the drivers side head making it impossible to adjust without moving the distributor. I've heard that you can move the distributor over one notch and move all the plug wires accordingly but wanted some advice before making this move. Thank you in advance...

Here's a pic...

You can do exactly that. Mark where number one plug is like on the block, rotate dist so next plug is there, move wires, then set your ign timing and lock it down. (Maybe check your ign timing first if you don't know what it is).

yup. In theory, wherever the rotor is pointing now with the car shut off, you can spin the dist however you want and just be sure it's pointing at the same wire. Redoing ignition timing at the end is because you'll never get it dead on by eye.
