I may have it fixed. I removed the Mikuni adapter, made a new gasket, stoned the mating surface of the S&S manifold, and put a very thin coat of gasket sealer on the mating surfaces, and bolted it up. The first run was way to rich lots of exhaust smoke with the needle clip down 2 notches, had to move it back one. adjusted the air mixture needle to 1 turn out and it runs good no popping back. Must have been an air leak, something I had not thought of. Thanks to Doc308 for the suggestion.
