My friend has a 73 F-100, FE block (360) w/ a Motorcraft 2150 2bbl. It wasn't running right; missing, etc. On cold start-up, so I cleaned and re-gapped the plugs, two of which were fouled, checked plug wire resistance, set the idle air mixture, and properly gapped the points. The choke was set correctly, so when I mashed the accelerator to set the choke, it fired right up when I bumped the starter. However, when you tip into the throttle, it starts loading up, missing and backfiring. Does this sound like a problem with carburetion?
