I still think you have a fuel problem. Go ahead and adjust the timing if you can get it to idle. Only if it will idle. the 2 screws you describe are idle mixture screws. Only afect mixture at idle. If it's blowing black smoke thier not the problem but FYI turn them in to lean out the mixture and out to ritchen. First thing I would check is the float level and fuel pressure. If it's a mechanical pump it's probably not the problem. If you added a elec it needs a regulator. Float and or needle may be stuck from sitting. Holly carb right? Fuel level in the carb should be at the bottom of the brass screw on the side of the float bowl. Get the fuel level here then we can tweak it further for offroad use if ya want.
I think these things will solve your problem. Good luck.:)
