I'm guessing it may have a weber installed. They are known to flood going up hill. Fuel gets into the vents inside the carb and causes flooding. You can turn the carb around, but it will flood going down steep hills but a bunch of folks have better results with it doing that.

89 Suzuki samurai fuel issue

sounds like the electric fuel pump is failing the backfire is a result of a really lean fuel mixture, it is hard to say if u did any damage, most likely not because the pump is inside a anti-slosh baffle

Samurai engine swap

It will fit if you:

1. Use an adaptor for the new front wheel engine and the original transmission of your suzuki ( ask your machinist)
2. Have your propeller shaft from the transmission to the independent transfer case resized depending on the outcome of your engine mount.
3. adjust the bracket of your transfer case if you need more room for the propeller.(optional)
4. you dont need to change gear ratio if you plan to use the same tires
