cadillacdave1 Is it possible that two ignition wires got crossed, possibly going to the wrong plug/cylinder. That will make a motor pop etc.

T-bucket23 If the carb was setup for alcohol it will need to be resetup for gasoline

Recheck the timing to be sure it didn't move.

Agree w/33Willys77, need more detail- missing under load, w/o a load, etc.

Ford C heads on a W block = Clevor. Takes different intake and valve reliefs, attention to cooling system details. Can make a strong running Ford.

33Willys77 Tell more... when does it pop, when does it miss - any other engine specs - carb specs. Timing correct? Does it pop through the carb or exhaust?

if your using the same plugs as were on alcohol they are to cold,
if its really high compression could be in detonation, check your plugs for proper firing color.

also if it sat a while depending on cam style could have broken valve spring from setting
