my bad...

I am going to have to agree with coldknock on this one. When i orginally answered i thought it was a race car, not sure why i thought that because you never said it in your post..... At any rate if you are street driving it i would try to get the timing set at around 18/20 inital with your 36 total in by 2000.....

All the HEI's i have ever worked on have had way to much mechanical advance and i have had to weld the slot shut to limit it.

It sounds like you need to dig into the distributor and find what is going on with it.
the problem with a motor like yor running is you are never going to "HEAR" the detonation. It's just going to destroy something first. At the very least you need to pull the plugs and look for signs of detonation.....

Good call coldknock,,, i just missed it was a street car?????
