Post Hard Start Question

I have a 1969 350 chevy engine that is hard to start. As the engine first starts to turn over sometimes I get a slight puff back into the carburator, and the engine has to turn over several times before it will start. Once it starts it runs great during any type of test you put it thru. It does this wheather it is hot or cold. I just recently put in a new pertronix electronic module, rebuilt the carb, fixed a vacuum leak, and the timing is right on at 4 degrees before top dead center. This car used to start so fast you couldn't even hear the engine turn over. Any suggestions?????
