YES SIR, ITS A ACCEL H.E.I. DISTRIBUTOR AND IT HAS A FRESHLY BUILT EDELBROCH 500 CFM 4 BARREL CARB. I COMPLETLEY DRAINED THE TANK TODAY AND FLUSHED THE LINES WITH GOOD 93 OCTANE FUEL. I PULLED OFF THE VALVE COVERS AND CHECKED THE ROCKERS, PUSHRODS, AND VALVES FROM THE TOP AND ALL LOOKS WELL. STILL POPPING THO.

Is there vacuum advance on Dist? If yes pull hose hook timing light run engine up see if timing advances 18-20 degs. If yes hook hose run up should advance 35-40 degs. Have you adjusted A/F ratio up to richen mix. Maybe having lean miss. Whenit breaks up does it backfire? Out exhaust or intake?

THE TIMING IS WONDERFUL. WHEN IT POPS IT POPS THRU THE CARB, THEN THRU THE EXAUST. CARB IS FAIRLY RICH AS WELL. COULD IT BE THE DIST. SHAFT BUSHINGS WORN?

Did this poping just start or did it start after a change to engine? Is there vacuum advance?
