Go back and check the base timing with the wire unplugged. I set Dave's at zero degrees advance, which is what Alldata called for.
You can then set the base idle again, following the long and drawn out procedure in the Alldata
After that, maybe clean the IAC valve and see if that all helps.

X2 What Leftlane said. Chevy's are pretty sensitive to the timing. It doesn't take much tweak to make a big difference how it acts. You normally set the base timing first, then hook it all back up. Then set the idle speed. Right now its "loading" the trans kinda like a drag racer, makes em run hot and like leftlane said things can get melted if it isn't right. After you got the base timing and idle speed, you can set the "fine-tune" stuff.

You are turning the dizzy to the left, I hope? That's what retards the timing.

Set it to zero degree's initially James. Then you can grab an extra COUPLE of degree's if you want or need it.
Alldata should have a good picture of the timing marks etc mate.

Spinning it clockwise is slowing the idle

Too far advanced then. I would just start from zero and then do as leftlane says (I don't have the alldata for this particular one).

Turn it to the right (clockwise) to slow it.

The hold down bolt usually bumps things a degree or two because the dizzy gears are spiral kinda like a diff. I used to just *barely* crack the bolt loose so that it needs both hands to turn the dizzy - tended to be more accurate that way.
