it sounds electrical .. start with ignition timing.. check the flywheel and points.. mke sure everything is ok.

then move on to mechanical .. head gasket .. or some other cause for a massive compression leakage.

i dont see a relationship between the pop sound and the trouble, other than the pop was a backfire, a symptom of incorrect timing.. i think that whatever the trouble, it has been around for a while and was getting worse..

a leaking pipe can easily lean the mixture .. the pipe sucks in air through a crack or leak and then pushes that air into the cylinder.. it's always best to take care of that sorta stuff immediately if not sooner.
