I would say EXACTLY 60 degrees to get the same timing.  Interestingly the 
instructions for installing the Judson mention doing exactly as I suggest 
(moving the wires) on "early" 62 cars ... they say that the early 62 cars 
have the vacuum advance facing the spare tire.  This would interfere with 
the Judson install.  They say that later Corvairs have the vacuum advance 
facing more towards the rear of the car.  Don't know if it is true -- only 
that mine was facing more towards the spare and I moved it as they 
suggest.  Seems to work fine.
