Would it cause sputtering and back firing?

the times I've had one fail, it just either rattled or lost power and wouldn't rev.

No sputtering or backfiring.

If you are sputtering and backfiring, you may have a number of problems.
It sounds like timing. Perhaps timing chain slipped a tooth or is shot.

Are you over on Comancheclub yet?

They have a funky activation that has to be done manually by an admin. I'll PM one of them and see if they can help.

CRUISER’S VACUUM TEST FOR EXHAUST RESTRICTION

Your vacuum gauge should come with an instruction booklet outlining the procedure. Hook the vacuum gauge up to a source on the intake manifold. Start the engine and note the vacuum reading. Usually 17 to 21 inches of vacuum. Throttle the engine up to 2,000 to 2,500 RPM for 20 seconds or so and the vacuum reading should stabilize to the same reading you got at idle. Let the throttle snap shut. The vacuum reading should shoot up about 5 inches of vacuum higher for a second and then come quickly down to the original reading. If the vacuum reading stays high and comes down slowly with jerky needle movements, you have an exhaust restriction.
