you have a valve problem I would sugest checking your valve lash. this is it back fires or pope on giving it gas. you might even having a timing issue but on this old of a motor it is a good thing to pull the valve covers and give the lash a good once over

Change spark plugs sounds like they are miss firing and check air filter.
