You have enough cam to where it will need some advance at idle. I have a bit bigger cam in my 454 (231/239). I idle it at 27 dgrs. Don't think it will even run at 15. :)

You really should add...

I converted the tach on my '71 to electric. It's easy and the electric tach is much better than the mechanical one ever was. I used a '75-'77 tach as it bolts right in and then put an early face...

I'd say mine disengages about 1/3 from the floor.

But I don't know what setup you ended up with. Are you still using a regular GM fork or a C3 fork? What was your clearance fix?

And there are...

Yeah, that's correct about the Mcleod clutch. I went from a Hays to the Mcleod RST dual disc and the Mcleod disengages sooner.

Sounds like the clutch barely disengages and then only with the pedal all the way to the floor? If so you will not be happy with it. It will be hard to drive and probably grind in reverse...

The factory 75-77 electric tachs were accurate up to ~3,500 rpm and then started reading high (I suspect to decrease warranty claims) and read 300-400 rpm high at 6,000 rpm.
