the backfire through the carb is usually a timing issue what do you have it set at now ?

sounds like some one may not have broke the cam in right...uh-ohhhh.. I like about 16-17 initial and 34 total, all in at 3,000. It really depends on the engine where it will make the most power, but you should be able to set the dizzy at 16* and it should run good.

you may not be getting enough fuel into it as well through the accelerator pump circuit. is your carb a vacuum secondary?

Every engine is different so timing for one 347 could be much different from what your 347 likes. The car size is good for what you have.

Total advance should be somewhere around 34* at about 3200 rpm . That's just a guideline tho you gotta try adjusting it to what your motor likes before you start to get detonation

is this true, to set timing for best performance advance the timing until you start to hear the motor pinging then retard the timing 2 to 3 degrees

on a carbed engine a good way to do a base timing is to turn it till it idles the highest then back it out 2*. you can use a vaccume gauge to help.
