Sounds like an intake air leak. Check your gaskets and make sure carb base isn't bent.

I'm thinking fuel pump issue, their is a one way valve on the pickup that sticks, the screens on the pickups have to be very clean, make sure the valve's on fuel pump are seating correctly, the spring and buffer cap can slip when installing the fuel pump,pickup tube's could be plugged (the long one is good for doing this).plan B,gravity feed carb.and strap on gas tank, would look more correct on an older rig to imo

Bet it heats up the gas tank real well too! Get a pipe street ell and put that into the block. If you get a 45°, you can turn it up and out some. Go by the electrical dept. and get a conduit lock nut for the threads into the block.

The original muffler for that was flat and had a deflector to send the exhaust sideways. I think it was a bolt on.
