74 Ford Gran Torino dies when stepping on fuel

I have a problem with my ford gran torino. It has a new 600 Holly carb, 351 cleveland v8. It always ran smooth but these days it backfires through the exhaust when idling. The moment when i step on the fuel it dies... I changed the carb gasket and its not sucking air. I dont think the timing is out. What can it be?

I'd still check the time, you may have broken a tooth.

Another possibility is water in the fuel. Put a bottle or two of fuel drier in it and see if it clears up.
