Still having timing problems

The only way I can get my 390 running is to turn the dizzy so the timing is about 30* BTDC it will start good and at least idle and keep running with an occasional miss. This has got me baffled it has a Pertonics setup and the heads were just done and I changed coils, thought that maybe the damper was moving at least the engine should run.The spark plugs all seem to be fouled and I don't know if that's from the ignition or something else.
Any idea's?
