Your motor only needs correct setup and a high stall converter.
The cam, carb etc etc is fine. The distributor needs a recurve and some carb setup.
needs a 10" 3500 stall. The gears are good.

26deg initial at idle 36deg at max advance. a short limited 10deg mechanical advance curve.
4.5 power valve and reset the carb up.

The cam you got will not work with a stock torque converter. but the milder cams I pointed too do work really well with a stock converter.
Pick one.

You are always messing with the carb casue its not set up right . either is the distributor.

26deg at idle 36 @ max advance 10deg advacne curve.

( or simply lock out the advance curve and run it locked at 36deg BTDC) you can keep the vacuum advance.The cam you got needs this kind of curve and so will the new one you want.
Neither work with a stock converter and a 2400 is not right either. It is just a cheap tweeked stock converter.

start by recurving the distributor correcty. Try it locked out and see.
more idle advance is better. 16 and 36 is not going to work. You want 26 and 36.
26deg at idle or more. Lock it out and see.

the 4.10's are fine for the street.

Any cam that has 229 @ .050" intake duration needs a 10" 3000 stall. even more in a 327.
This cam will be lazy with a stock or near stock converter especially in a 327.
It really wants a 3500 stall converter.
