I think someone has already said it, but you don't need a "Mopar expert" 100 miles and 3 weeks away to look at your car.
These engines are pretty basic and operate the same across all makes - Mopar, Chevy, Ford etc.
Any competent old school mechanic should be able to help you.
Also, you're focussing too much on the carburetor brand/type/cfm. You should be able to bolt on any carb from say 600 to 750 cfm and it will work ok once set up. Ultimate performance might differ, but the engine should run ok with no backfire.
1 or 2 hours of basic checks and I bet it will be either fixed or you'd know what the issue was.
