Oh also I got some carb/throttle body cleaner and sprayed it around the carb base plate as well as intake manifold, didn't notice any changes.. Also sprayed around the vac lines. If there is a leak I didn't find it

Jets are .098 and .095.. I now also figured out that this carburetor does not have a full time vacuum port lol. Both are ported/timed. Only reason I discovered this is because I looked at jegs website to get the jet specs. I had no idea. F***** smog carb :-)

The eddy carb is a 1400 carb, so i gotta look at what it comes with in terms of jets. I didn't change anything.
No it's not. Your ignition module may be causing some of this. I'm not sure.

Here's how to figure it. Let's say 13* initial timing at idle. As RPM increases, the advance should increase proportionately until 3000 to 3500 RPM. Total advance should be about 32 to 36*.

13+19=32.

That's if you had no vacuum advance. If the vacuum advance adds 10*, it would be:

13 initial +9 in the distributor weights+10 in vacuum advance for a total of 32*
