    Exclamation need some quick help! backfired...

    alright, I got everything to what i thought was connected ( i was replacing the pump shoe brackets on the inside... had to take off the sound supression i think its called, waterbox, and the tube that connects the two.)... put my battery box in... hooked the battery, and decided to try to start it. Started it first... whoops dont have the spark plug connectors on... then i turned the choke on. Started it... it turned over, and gave... then it was a quick sound like PSst of air, and backfired. what is wrong?! I know for a fact my waterbox is connected 100%... the one thing i was having a problem with earlier... is that far back connection. between the black box, and the tube that is way back there.




    then I opened it up... and looked, and everything looks connected... known of the tubes are off... or anything?!?!

    I gotta agree with the above - flooded with fuel. Chances are it wasn't technically a backfire, but unspent fuel in the exhaust igniting (a good thing since backfires often signal the demise of one or more intake reeds). Take the choke off, start and run it, and it should be fine. Once it's started check the exhaust for leaks.
