Cam has 226 int./234 exh. @ 0.050" lift and needs no where near 26 degrees initial. Start around 16-18 degrees initial and work up from there.

Generally it is better to get the timing worked out, then go on to carburetion- as long as it's running well enough to set the mechanical (should be all in by about 3K rpm).
