I had a Q-jet lying around and swapped that on there and the sputtering and backfiring went away, but unless I rev it up pretty high it just fires up revs up a few hundred rpms over idle and then dies. When its dying I can't do anything about it even if I touch the gas pedal. It does run fine when i have the throttle open a good bit. Maybe the carb just needs to be rebuilt? The advance was ran off the carb, but after everything Ive heard I think Ill run it off the manifold.
