I feel like a walked into the middle of a conversation. There is too much information missing, like...

Did it start doing this out of the blue?
Did you install a new distributor?
Did you turn the existing distributor?

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

Well, almost. as long as the rotor is pointing at the right terminal at the right time.

Did you check the compression? Maybe the intake valve is stuck open. That will mess with things.

if you have had your distributor apart and have put the drive pick up cog on the bottom of it on the other way it will spin in the other way . remove your cap and make sure its spinning the correct direction when winding the motor over. if it isnt just put your leads on in the right order starting at number 1 but going round the cap backwards..

A backfire through the carb is only caused by two things. Excessively lean air/fuel mixture or incorrect timing.

Somehow the #2 cylinder is out of time.

Good Luck........

you need to compression test #2,your valve is staying open and sending the combustion charge out the intake. If it runs smooth except for the popping,it is bad valve or valve train component on #2 cylinder,intake side.Let us know the answer,hope it is simple fix.

That's what I was thinking. I mentioned it about 6 days ago and still waiting for a reply.
