I would imagine choking made it worse, try spaing soapy water just around the carb gasket and intake manifold gasket looking for bubbles while engine is idling, if one is suspected then cover it with a layer of grease and see if it changes.
Water in gas could also cause backfiring, drain old gas and refill with good high octane gas.

I found the manual and the clearances are listed there.  It is .006 for both exhaust and intake.
