68 camaro with a zz3 crate motor.
motor was running fine then started to misfire and backfire.
installed new plugs,wires,rotor,cap,and coil.
set timming 10 deg b.t.d.c.
car ran good for 1 day maybe running a little rich.

the the misfiring came back.

looked for vac leaks
could it be the carb? (holley 4160)

I'm not familiar with the ZZ3 - is it a breaker point ignition system? If so are you using a ballast resistor or resistor wire to the coil? Is the coil hotter than a fire-cracker and buldging on the bottom?
