Default rebuilt 85 300 l6 bogs at 1600 rpms

my 300 l6 bogs at around 1600 rpms. it seems like its the carb. the engine was rebuilt by aamco but they didnt seem to do that great of a job. but my friend and i have rebuilt the carb and it helped a little bit but it still bogs the timing is right the timing gears to top dead center and set the timing to 0 but it still bogs. my room mate says its a 300 thing but im not sure any suggestions?

Did you say timing was set on 0 ? The timing is suppose to be set on 10 degrees .
