Jim, by popping I mean like a mild cough or maybe even a momentary dead spot might be more descriptive. When I first drove his car after it was rebuilt, I noticed that when I mashed it, the car kinda did a forward and backwards rock for only a second but continued to rev. At that time it revved pretty good but something to me seemed slightly strange. Since that time he replaced the points with a Pertronix module and sent the carb to Jett Performance. He has also had a seemingly unrelated problem with the car wanting to kick back when you tried to start it when hot. The motor had a total rebuild done on it, and I believe that everything was gone over top to bottom. The thing should be like a new one.
