Usually you wouldn't be into the transition slot w/that much initial timing. But I suppose the possibility exists.
Start by readjusting the idle mixture screws. Do that first and see what it runs like. If that doesn't help enough, the easiest way to see what the t-slot looks like is to remove the carb and turn it over (careful of the fuel coming out of it).
Hopefully the problem isn't a too-tight torque converter. Does it try to pull through the converter when at a stop, foot on the brakes?
