Customer Question

Hello,
I have a 1966 with a 427CID. When I accelerate and put the engine under load, it starts to rapidly afterfire through the side pipes. IT is very loud, very rapid and continues while accelerating.
Tried resetting the timing many times. Seems to be a little better for about 2 minutes and starts again.
Any ideas? Anyone of you good on 1966 Carb vettes?
