Way out of time, backfiring, (if it runs at all), lesser mistime, poor acceleration, missing, poor gas mileage and. as you describe, distinct odor of unburnt hydrocarbons especially if it's too retarded, if too advanced, hard start, Should be 10 degrees btdc, and timing will not prevent it from turning over
