I've been confronted with a similar situation and my solution was to set the timing a bit retarded so that it was right when advanced. It was trial and error. I'd set it and then take it out and try...

Re: broken cylinder head studs

This will be tedious but I'd keep at it. Try using your centre punch to start a drill as close as possible to the centre of the stud. Once you JUST start to get a cut, stop and check it for centre....

Re: Model B crank in Model A

I've seen a couple of A engines with B cranks. The clear distance between the main bearing bolts (2") is the limiting factor for journal size. The main bearing journals on the B crank have to be...
