Go 10 deg BTDC it 'll work on 4af/5af engine and double check your carb's accelerator pump if its squirting fuel when throttle is pulled back if not this will cause hesistation

Fast idle would be a cold engine, after engine gets up to temp, idle should be 900 + or - 50.

It will automatically go down to 900 rpm if the auto-choke/fast idle cam is set correctly-
