Points are .019" or 30* of dwell is using dwell meter. Point set w/condenser is fine to use.
Choke may be opening alittle too fast during cold temp. However, during normal operating temp, check initial timing with vac advance unplugged and hose plugged, engine idle at 600 in Drive or 700 in manual neutral, set initial for 2* BTDC. I would probably set it for 4-6* BTDC.
Use vacuum gauge on full time vacuum (manifold vacuum)and adjust idle mixture screws for max indication (more vacuum, 0 is less, 18-20 is more). Reset curb idle and should be good to go.
You may want to add a can fuel cleaner and/or clean and regasket the carb with a kit. You will get a new accellerator pump to help the openig of throttle. Fresh gasoline will help alot.
When tuned properly, one should be able to set at idle in gear, if auto, and go instantenously to WOT and the car should perform without problems.
