Ignition timing for 351C

Hi,
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.
