Back the rocker arms off untill they are at zero lash. That will eliminate the possibility of a valve hanging open. You can readjust them after you get a good idle. Set the mixture screws on the carb at 1 1/2 turns. Try turning the distributor a little each way untill it idles. With the info you gave that is the best I can come up with for now.
