The degree key goes on the crankshaft to line up the flywheel and crankshaft for timing reasons. From what everyone has said on here the last time this question was asked was its not worth the trouble.

they come with the vitos jet kit. they replace the fuel screws that are on the bottom of the carbs with easy to access thumb screws so you dont have to fool with taking the carbs off to adjust the screws. i love them

I think Willy was being facetious - jokingly implying that it might do better reversed than it would in normally... but NEITHER do much. Unless your engine has a crap load of major mods that could use some timing advance (or retardation), the stock curve is just about perfect. If you go to extreme high compression, there is an advantage to retarding timing.
