It might be the same issue causing the loud pop on Telly's 40 on shutdown.
My issue is an A-B comparison vis a vis the carb. My issue was not present with the prior to the motor rebuild, and is present after. I installed the carb the day before I drove toward Moab and had no issues with backfiring upon negative acceleration during that drive.

As I wrote, I need to (1) check valve adjustment and (2) replace the muffler with holes and possibly (3) check all the emissions subsystems before I come here and ask for advice.
