Alright so I got it running tonight! The weird thing is that the timing Haas to be retarded 15 to 30 degrees for it to run (that's without the vacuum advance hooked up). And it does not idle very well I have to keep giving it gas to run but its runs nice with good thotlle responded when I'm on the gas.
I bought a holly 750 Carb off a guy that used it for a dyno run on a smc stroked so I don't know if that is why it won't idle well?
Has anyone come across that timing issue before?
