Sounds like you need to check ignition timing, then points, plugs, condenser, distributor cap... basic old time tune up stuff.

When the engine backfires, the timing is generally retarded. Since you just got it, make sure the points are gapped properly in the distributor, plugs gapped, then you can set timing. Once you have all of those correct, then you can start tweaking the carb.
