CHECK FOR CROSSED PLUG WIRES FIRST(BECAUSE IT'S EASY)
IF THE FUEL MIXTURE IS TOO LEAN ON THE REAR CARB IT WILL BACKFIRE.THIS COULD BE CAUSED BY INCORRECT CHOKE SETTING,LOW FLOAT LEVEL,OR STUCK NEEDLE VALVE.
MANY OF THESE OLDER CARS HAVE HAD THE WIRING MODIFIED(BOTH WIRES TO ELEMENTS WERE JOINED)
THE CORRECT HOOK UP IS,POWER TO THE FRONT CHOKE ANY TIME KEY IS ON AND POWER TO THE REAR CHOKE ONLY AFTER THE ENG. REACHES ABOUT 165 DEGREES F.
