380SE hard to start & idle problems

I am running out of things to check. 150km on it. chains put on 15km ago. When I adjust timing to TDC it will idle rough and then die. I am going to check fuel pressure next I guess. Has new cap,rotor, and wires. Plugs also used platinum plugs. Car runs ok at 10btdc w/o vacum. With vacum it idles at 25btdc and ok smooth
just hard to start. With timing set right, timing with vacum at idle it is 15btdc and idles real rough then dies. Any help please. Also the fuel pump whines all of the time. Thanks for any help!!!
