which way to advance

I have looked at the rotart switch that has to be drilled out to acces by the firewall, but which way is advancing and which way is retard? I asked about this earlier but no responses. Generally advanced ignition even with better fuel won't help that much unless you can get more air in as well. How good is the knock sensor in the legend? Is it good enough to retard timing incase of detenation? How much can I advance the timing total in degrees with the rotary knob?

Timing Adjust

Don't know if you ever got your answer from so long ago, but clockwise with the screw adjust is advance, CCW is retard. About 11 o'clock position as it's facing up is 15 degrees. Good luck.
