Distributor Curve check

741 5
Well, in preparation for lighting off my car sometime this week, I want to measure/adjust the advance curve on my car. I've got a Mallory Unilite distributor (no vacuum advance, 3 wire hookup). I understand that it is recommended to have 30 degrees of total advance. How do I measure this? I have a craftsman inductive timing light (without a dial on the back).

Thanks in advance for the info.
