I agree, what`s the fuel pressure? Also 12 degrees timing is not enough. This can cause the idle to be open so far it`s creating fuel drip from the boosters making the problem worse. If you have vacuum advance, connect it to a full time manifold vacuum source, one that pulls vacuum full time including idle, now recheck the timing, it should be 20 - 24 degrees, you`ll notice right away the idle went up, then you can lower it back down so it`s idleing off the idle circuit instead of the main boosters. You`ll also notice it picked up alot of low end power and throttle response.
