    Welcome

    Is your engine two or three cylinder?

    Carburetor or fuel injected?

    Check the carb too. Open it up and clean it.

    See my signature links for lots of info.

    If the original gray Tempo fuel hoses are still installed, replace them all, along with the fuel filter and fuel selector valve.

    Also rebuild the carburetor with genuine Keihin OEM rebuild kit, not aftermarket.

    Regarding backfire, you may want to check that the flywheel is not out of index. Sometimes the flywheel can shear the woodruff key and rotate. At the same time you can check that the crankshaft is not twisted out of index.
