1979 Ranchero GT 302

OK, I need some help. I cant get that wacky Motorcraft/Holley 2100 carb adjusted right, and my performance is paying for it . I'm also having trouble with my timing. Anybody know the amount of advance needed, as well as any tips on tuning the 2100. thanks

And one thing I forgot to mention, the engine has a HUGE flat spot when accelerating hard. I just assumed this is a problem with the timing and tuning. I just recently rebuilt the carb, but all this was happening before that.

All my book shows for timing is, "to see the label under the hood".
