For a high performance application using the 600cfm eddy carb start with this calibration

.098" pri jet .068x.047 pri rod .101" sec jet. 4" to 6" piston strep spring.

5psi fuel press at idle. not less than 3psi @WOT high rpm.

Your narrow band O2 should stay pegged at .800 to .850 V @WOT.
you got a leak in the exhaust system. or the ignition system is misfireing or both.
or your fuel pump, fuel lines, in tank pick up tube or fuel filter is fubared
That first step on your rod seems a little rich for decent mileage. Id go 70 or 72 but to each their own.
