It's lazy because the timing is way slow. You need about 18-22 degrees initial timing in that thing with the cam and single plane. Then limit your total mech adv to about 36-38. With the manual trans you can hook your vac advance up to mainfold vac limited to 12-14 degrees and turn your idle down to around 900-1,000 rpm or a little lower if it likes it. That will kill the run-on. You NEED a decent timing light with an advance capability and you can solve your problems.
