Should I disconnect vacuum advance when adjusting ignition timing?

In my many years of "amateur" resto work, I have always disconnected the vacuum line from the distributor.
This way you will have a true read of timing with NO advance.
P.S.
You must plug the line after disconnect so there is no vac leak...

Well I feel a little better, as I had the vacuum advance disconnected. I set it to 4 degrees advance. It seems to run smoother, it was off the scale when I started.
