Ignition timing: how do I rotate the distributor?

Subject: Ignition timing: how do I rotate the distributor?

I feel like a dork asking this, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do fine adjustments on the Hitachi distributor. I have one of the four-sharp-teeth matchbox style distributors (and another electronic one that's quite different) and my current one is honestly adjusted pretty well. I was expecting there to be some sort of pinch bolt on the dizzy shaft so I could loosen that and rotate the body, but I can't find it. It's possible that it's buried in too much oil crud to see.
I've gone through the ignition timing part of the wiki and it has lots of detail, but, not "loosen this bolt on the bottom" that I could find.
Thanks for any advice
