Post Backfire

I have a 71 f100 p-up 302 (stock)with factory 2- barrel carb with 3-speed. The only thing that is not stock is a set of headers. My problem is that out of the blue it has started backfiring very loudly on deceleration. I mean loudly. I rebuilt the carb and checked the points and plugs. The truck idles smooth and accelerates smoothly as well. Could slack in the timing chain cause this?

First off, I am NOT a Mechanic. But my thoughts are that the loose timing chain may be slipping whenever you downshift. Does it go "KABOOM" or does it

does the truck have a "smog pump"??
If it does and the diverter valve is stuck to send air downstream it will pop like crazy on decel. Just a thought
