Cessna 185 on EDO 3500 amphibs

Bob may

I have recently put my 185 with a factory I0550 port/ polished, Leeds exhaust on amphib EDO 3500s Its the most water loving difficult@$#^%* plane I've ever flown of water, including Norseman!!
I have the EDO drawings but my AME says so far he has been unable to find much on rigging . I think it needs the nose lifted up to get some lift as it comes upon the step pretty quickly and then there is no sweet spot and it just burns up lake at 50 and has trouble accelerating. LOADS of power so I think the plane/float incidence is actually holding it down on the water. Does anyone know what the recommended flying wire measurements fore and aft are??They are boxed/ matched but may be wrong...
