cam lobes are wearing out that's why valves are not opening making back fire out carb. or your timing chain could be wore out. to check this remove distcap and watch the ignition rotor for movement while someone turns the bolt on the crankshaft oneway and then the other until it moves. Also if it has jumped time chect to make sure that when ta no1 top dead center that ingnition rotor is in correct location.
