"There's nothing wrong with using "retarded" in the literal sense of saying that a spark is advanced or retarded."

AAh yes. The "good old days" when you could tune an engine with a timing light, a matchbook cover (to gap the points) & a feeler gauge to gap the sparkplugs. Retarded comes in when you had to retard the spark. You'd do that by loosening the nut at the bottom of the distributer & rotating same until the timing was right. This was checked by the timing light lining up with the chalkmark on the flywheel. All that lines up, then its off to the "Connecting Highway"to make some $$$.
