carby setup on a 202

I am having trouble tuning up a 202 blue motor.It has a 350 holly (58 jets & a 6.0 power valve)cain manafold,extractors & a mild cam.
when I set the timing to about 4 to 6 tdc the car will run fine around town in light through to heavy acceleration but on the highway sitting on a 100 kph the motor will start pinging going up a hill under moderate power.When I retard the timing back to about 0 to 2 tdc the pinging on the highway stops but the engine will lose power and stall when in town.I have tryed 59 jets,adjusted the fuel mixture and tryed another distributor all to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Racing the HT Monaro.

Thank you for the reply to my earlier message. For racing the HT Monaro are we better running the 350 Chev or staying with the 308 as they were a standard fit here to the South African Monaros. There is some thought that the 308 worked will be a better option, this I doubt but please any advise would be appreciated. Can anyone also help with the tricks or options one did in racing the Monaro back in the 70's. Thank you all for being there and I am glad to see the page up and running again. Cheers. David '
