I have an 1970 Opel GT that backfires through the carb and the exhaust. I've replaced the distributor and checked the timing, and the timing is good. Anyone with any suggestions? Yes the car does run, but backfires quite often.

i know this probably aint it, but check the firing order to be sure you have the plug wires in the right place

if youn use a timeing light you get the advance kicking in and this will give you a missfire sometimes!
