I do notice a air blast,poof type sound when starting it that seems new if that makes a difference not a backfire its coming from the motor somewhere.
One of my 350s did this. I too looked for the usual suspects without success. Eventuality I completely disassembled the carb (TM33). It turned out there was a bit of trash accumulated ABOVE the float needle seat restricting fuel.flow.
