what ill do is use a vacumn guage, ill advance the timing till i reach the highest vacumn reading and tighten the dizzy down, of course i do this with the motor at temp. shut it down and leave it off for about 2 min then try to restart, if it starts slow or sluggish ill back it off till it stops. then drive it and check for pinging. if it pings you can dial out some timing with the vacumn advance if you have one.
also im sure your windsor has quite a bit of cam in it, and the cam will not like base timing specs guaranteed, they like lots of initial timing, the vacumn guage will let you see where the engine is the happiest. good luck
