Just set the gap. Dwell will follow, as Bruce said. I have seen dwell numbers in manuals for Ford tractors, other than side mount 8N, that are either in crank degrees or mis-print, because too large to be possible. I have also see expressed as a percentage instead of degrees. I have measured both front mount and side mount (OEM & after market) with a degree wheel and with a dwell meter and find disagreement there, too.
