I would attempt connecting things the right way, if you are lucky the RPM relay and SOVs are still working. Idle timing should be around 4 deg ADTC with retard. Check for max advance at 3000 RPM.
The ports on those carbs supply only manifold vacuum, so connecting one straight to the distributor advance really messes up the timing curve. On my '70, I had to repair the RPM relay (old leaking capacitors) and replace both SOVs to get everything working correctly.
