Reason i mention distributor, because at ideal the distributor utilizes the carb / engine vacuum for advance.

check Steve's suggestion.

i have used 32/36 setup with 2800 and had same problem as you. Below i have "cut and paste" some info regarding same issue:-

"Are those the 32/36 DGAV? If so, they are too small for the 3.0 litter engines. They'd be OK for the 2500. The primary venture is only 26 mm,
whereas the minimum recommended by weber would be 28 mm. However, you can make them work OK with 140-145 main jets and 160/170 air correctors. The
3.0 litter and the 2002 engine have the same size cylinders, so you can use the 2002 jetting"

I thinks its worth buying couple of good carb books and study them, rather than paying $500 hear, $500 there, $500 somewhere, without any good / satisfactory results.

Good Luck
