I'll echo the others on getting rid of the flex fan and using a good quality clutch fan with six or seven blades.

The other thing to consider is, are you using ported or manifold vacuum for the distributor? With ported vacuum, you get no advance at idle. Factory cars that use ported vacuum also use an thermal vacuum switch that switches the distributor to full manifold vacuum if the car starts to overheat.
