The popping and backfiring up through the carb can usually be traced to a faulty accelerator pump circuit. When it happens on the Eddy carbss, you usually have to take the little squirt nozzles off and clean them out with a small wire and compressed air. Then make sure the ball/check valve underneath the nozzles isn't full of crud, and last lube up the pump itself with a few drops of light oil. With the horrible gas we have today, I find myself doing this every spring on my and my friends cars.

I see that the blind mice had not updated this thread...LOL
It turned out that the carb base gaskets Mobby had were
(1) cracked,
(2) The second gasket had brass eyelets in it and when the carb was tightened down,there was still a huge gap between the gasket and intake causing a vacuum leak and no start condition.
Actually, gas was pouring out the side of it from the carb..
 Polaraco discovered this mess.
A quick jaunt to a local parts store was rewarded with a proper fit base gasket.
After re-setting the spark plug firing order, (how it ran at all is a miracle.Off by one plug and the ignition was so retarded ) reset the timing and fine tune the carb,Nadine purrs like a kitten.At idle she is reading 20 inches of vacuum.  
That was August 26th.
