Default 40 backfire

My 78 '40 lets out a healthy backfire when I shut it down. The PO told me to simply engage the clutch in first gear to stop the engine before the "bang". I've been doing this without issue but would rather fix the core problem. The PO did rebuild the carb...can't remember who did the work off the top of my head.

Any ideas where to look first? Thanks. Doug
