The only difference between the 480 and the 483 are the centrifugal advance curves and the vacuum advance unit calibration (the specs for both are on page 15 in the "Specifications" section of the 1969 Chassis Service Manual). You'll need to change the weights and springs and replace the vacuum advance unit, and have the curve set up on a Sun distributor machine. The stock 480 curve and vacuum advance were set up for emissions, and can be improved upon quite easily.
