When we used points (been doing this way too long) I simply used no springs. The load from the ppoints would pull the advance back out for easy start ups. Small throttle whack = full advance even at idle. EFI makes it much easier.

The reward is no hard starting, no kickbacks, no broken flexplate teeth and no broken starter drives. Spins over like the plugs are out.
We class racers use an MSD timing control with fixed distributor. It'll take 15* or so out for starting. Also , we class racers sometimes use it to retard the timing in high gear.
