backfireing through carb at low rpm

Check your distributor to make sure that the weights are operating correctly. Check all the bushings for wear. Use a timing light with advance to check timing from idle to 4000 rpms. Use a vacuum gauge to run test on engine. Test are in the booklet that comes with vacuum gauge. Check for weak valve springs.
