Timing question

I purchased a 1977 Pontiac and need to do a tune-up.
If I want to ADVANCE the timing do I move the marker TOWARD top dead center (TDC) or AWAY from TDC?

Away from TDC advances the timing; generally the index marker tab shows marks for timing from 0 to maybe 12 degrees advanced. You're using a light and the factory spec? Advance timing by turning the distributor opposite the direction of rotation.
