Ford 460 holley 750 Questions :)

I'll just make 1 thread and keep updating it with questions rather then posting a new one each time i need help.

I have just brought myself a 1970 jaguar with a ford 460 bigblock running a holley 750 carb, it runs but runs rough here are the list of my questions.

Whats the best sparkplug to get because i need new ones?
is this carby algood for the engine?
How do i tune the carby to run on the engine fine?
what compression is this engine ment to be at? ( in psi )
How do i set the timing? and what timing should i set it at?
What petrol is best for the engine? we have 91 octane 95 and 98
What oil should i use in it?
and i have no idea what type of ignition setup it is . . will take a picture of it

Is there anything i need to know about this motor like what to do and what not to do to it.

there is also heaps of random hoses that have jst been blocked up with bolts etc and not used will get detailed pictures of the engine etc when its fine so you can see.

any help is much appreciated Want to get this on the road

The guys to do list he gave me has these left to do.
new plugs, tune up, drive shaft, gearbox linkage,oil change, trans flush, accelerator cable, brake booster.
