ignited gas fumes coming up out the carb would indicate a problem from an intake valve being sticking open (cracked,so crusted up with carbon that it can't fully close),timing (simply a vac, at the distributor to actually needing a timing adj,) ie: there ain't no flame source inside the carb,fire in the hole is escaping.
