Default Re: Terriable backfiring

Use a propane torch, unlit. Turn the gas on and direct the gas stream around the intake manifold as the engine is running. If there is a change you have a leak. Can also use WD40 but it makes a bit of a mess.
As previously posted. Check point gap. Usually point gap too close makes for hard starting as well.
