Help needed on timing

I am hoping if someone can guide me on this ignition setup I am running. It is HEI on a SBC. Cam is 230 @ .050" and .490" lift on 9.9:1 CR on Vortec heads. Aside from the carb being way too lean, the truck is running great. The ignition is as follows:

initial timing: 26
total timing: 35 (all in by 2,500 RPM)
no vacuum advance

Also I have "medium" springs in the HEI now, but they hold off advance from happening until 2,000 RPM's.

It is a manual trans and 3.73 posi. I think the truck is 3,800-4,000 lbs.

can't do anything with the timing until you fix that lean condition.

are you getting any popping in the carb? Is the lean all the time or just under accelleration?
