Automatic transmissions are gay.

Get ride of the edelbrock, snatch up a holley truck avenger, and start out around 37 degrees full advance with the vaccume disconnected if it has one.

Just run the motor up while watching your timing marks and when they quit advancing put it at 37. This usually take place around 2800 to 3500 depending on how your distributor is set up. If you are running vaccum advance, make sure you unplug it before you set the timing!
