Try the basic fixes - Carbarator spray, get a 55 gallon barrel and set up the motor to run - adjust the needle (air fuel mixture). The backfiring is caused by gas not burning in the cylinder and then firing in the exhaust instead. Use gas stableizer all the time - this will help with the tarish from building up. Sometimes just running the motors often will help remove buildup. Good luck.
