    Yes and No. Converting any given distributor from contact breaker points to electronic doesn't change it's requirement for vacuum advance. So if it needed one before it needs one now and if it didn't need one before it doesn't need one now.

    You missed where he clearly said he had a can on it...

    No I didn't. Just because a distributor has a vacuum can on it doesn't mean it's connected or that it's required. Besides I wanted to be sure he understood that an electronic conversion didn't influence whether or not a vacuum can needed to be fitted.
