Hi,
Welcome to HotRodders.com Glad to have you with us.

Chevy's Dist. rotate clockwise, so buy turning the dist CC. you were advancing the timing further.

I have a buddy that can't get this right either, so now he takes the valve cover off & watches for both valves to be closed, then lines up the pointer at 0*

It's not necessary to change the dist location, you can just change the location of the wires, after you have #1 at TDC wherever the rotor is pointing, make that tower the #1 plug wires new home.

Plug gaps, fool around a little with the gaps, you may find a closer setting may work better for you

You can change seals while the heads are still on
Rich
