Set the timing to 8-10 advanced with the vacuum advance unhooked from the distributor and plugged. After you have set it hook the vacuum advance back to the distributor and don't worry about how much it raises the timing, it is supposed to do that. Take it for a test drive and see if it is better. Right now you have the timing set way too low.
