Working on a 68 Camaro with a friend helping out another friend and couldn't figure out whether the timing was off or maybe just carb. problems.

...it was an inconsistent dist.

Carb. filled the whole dang exhaust system up with raw fuel...and then the distributor finally decided to do its thing and light 'er up!

I would check float levels and see if it's leaking gas after it's off. I just replaced my HEI distributor because the coil and play in the shaft was bad. It would stop sparking and fill the exhaust with raw fuel, spark again , then blow a big bang. I used to turn the key off while driving, load up the glass packs, pump the gas, then turn the key back on and blow flames. Yours sounds like it's leaking fuel into the exhaust after shut off.

Looks like someone ignited some fuel in the exhaust system!

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

The bench and the buckets, console look awesome!! Highlander Green Plaid is the best color in my opinion. You have some great seat choices there.
