Try a tank full of higher octane fuel---like switch from 87 octane to 91 or 93

World War 2 studies showed that the Japanese burned 87 octane fuel in their aircraft--including their famed "Zero"----whereas the Americans burned 100 octane in their craft including their P-51 Mustang & P-38 Lightning(forked tail devils)----thus giving the Americans the advantage in controlling the skies over the South Pacific

So---try a tank of 93 octane and see of the backfiring and sputtering clears itself up before you "tinker" anymore with the carb settings!!
