Well it seems like I might have gotten a start on it, one of the idle screws was backed out a little further than the other, at least Im assuming thats what it was, just gave it a few turns to even em up. Still a little smoke but not the huge cloud I had before. And the throttle shaft has all kinds of play in it, I've seen that's a common problem too. This all from what I've read, never actually looked at any of this until now. As far as timing, we do it the fun way with no light and I was lucky enough to get the engine with no timing tab, just do it all by ear the best I can and yes it has a vacuum advance dist. And I know that cam is probably more than I should have ever bought but, it hasn't been in there any time at all and I have a 350 sitting I could always start on.
