Sent you a PM.
Do you have the timing adjusted with enough advance?
BTW your idle mixture screws don’t really “lean” out the idle mixture. It just gives you more or less of the mixed fuel that is controlled by the idle and idle air bleed jets.
With 13” if vacuum, your engine likely is milder (with respect to Cam overlap) than it was designed. Btw are you using manifold vacuum to the distributor?
You should be able to tune it to where you don’t get the teargas smell at idle
