Loud Mouse knows what he is talking about, but I don't know what he said or what you actually did. Timing is usually set at the timing mark and that's about 5 or 10 degrees before TDC. Some people like to set static timing in the fully advanced position and to do that the crank is turned to the full advance mark and the points cam has to be manually rotated to fully advanced. But that's a PIA to do, so most of us set it manually at the retarded point and then fine tune it with a timing light.

How did you set the timing and can you post a picture of where you set it and where the timing light lights up? That might help to identify the issue.
