found the problem

Carbuetor is the issue stiil not sure of the exact location of the problem but i found another quadra jet carb that worked previously and got a nice idle out of it the accel pump is being a little stubborn but in time is starting to respond. problem soved but not at the finish line yet .

quick breakdown of events.
swapped out a 305 with qjet and hei
replaced qjet with holley mani and edelbrock carb and mechanical dist over fueling issuse sooty pluygs
switched back to qjet and mani still problems with idle even after 5 rebuild attemps switched out mechanical dist to hei and replaced qjet with diffent one idle and rough running gone.

thinking the plugs on carb were leaking even after epoxy attemp.

my best advice is to not let your children in your work space to adjust all the screws on your cab while its off your motor. or this may help to reduce troubleshooting time frame.

thanks for the help and references guys.
