Wednesday I'll have time to readjust more secondary and little more "idle" screw to see if I can get a good idle rpm. So far I have not touched my timing which is still 18' idle. As it is now I have zero idle screw turned in and am fumbling at 500 rpm

Thanks for the advice so far. I think the carb has been my trouble for a long time. reading back in this post you'll see that I used to idle at 38' timing which compensated for the low idle-screw-adjustment and then when I added the msd timing computer I dropped my idle timing down to 18' and raised the idle-screw-mixture to bring my rpm back up which is where things went wrong

EDIT: As for timing, I think I dead on correct. Check this old post where a user "454c10" mentions 20' - 25' initial and 40' total
acceleration flat spot in carb.
