I guess I got ahead of myself. I fired it up in the driveway and it ran and idled fine, no backfiring. So I put it together last night (had not gone so far as pulling the tanks) and today it ran terrific, idled perfect, but still backfires when winding down from about 4,000 RPM. It seems to be the right pipe which is the front cylinder. I checked around the head and the pipe joint and did not find a leak. as far as the carbs i did as much inspection from topside I could and the carbs seem seated (although I have been fooled before on that one). I would say its definitely an airleak.
