Engine Troubles

I have been having trouble with my engine lately.  In the low to mid rpm 
ranges, when I am acclerating, the engine is not 'right'.  The engine 
runs rough, and then after about 3600 rpm, clears up and storms right up 
to redline.  I think that the carbs are either flooding ath the low rpms, 
or the timing is not right.  I checked the timing last night, and it was 

Does anyone have an alternative method of checking the mixture settings 
on the HS-4's?  My 'lift the pin a 1/16" and listen to the increase in 
engine speed method" seems to have failed me.  All suggestions 
appreciated, except putting on a Weber.

Thanks in advance,
Thomas James Pokrefke, III (I run fine at all rpms)
1970 MGB (runs rough in the low- and mid-ranges) (runs rough in the upper-range {ie-500+msg})
