Try using a timing light. Much more accurate than a mark in the block.

You said carb, so I am thinking an accelerator pump problem. You need to see if both pumps are pushing fuel thru the discharge nozzles when opening the throttle.

+1^
I have a 750dp and works good (mechanical secondary). I'am almost sure something is wrong with your carb.
