I checked the timing and it was way slow like 22 degrees total advance? Is this what you are talking about? Will it hurt anything the motor seemed to run fairly well in comparison to track condition

You might try increasing your timing. MOst guys run around 36. Perhaps when you increase the timing it will also get the water temp up.
