Ignition timing for 351C

I am (still) trying to find out what timing setting to use with my MSD ready to run dizzy. Eg: initial advance and which spring/bush combination to use. I am experiancing pinging (closed chamber heads opend out) at around 90Km/h cruising on and off throttle. The vacuum advance is still there and I am reluctant to take it off.
Cam is Crow cams

2113675IN.33/73 286
EX.78/35 293
2700-5800 power range
"Popular hot street cam which delivers strong strip performance."

Anyone with similar please let me know your settings.

1978 XC Fairmont GXL, Emerald green, Jade Int. 351C, 750 VAC, C10, 9" LSD
Air, steer, power windows................
