When I was a kid, and heard a car backfire, my Dad told me that the car was running on orange juice and it was just spitting out seeds.

Backfiring (from exhaust, not carb) in my '41 was due to crossed spark plug wires.

slow timing, points not set correctly, crossed wires, lean mixture,,weak valve spring, check accelerator pump to see if it working
