Question about Sears Garden
Backfire usually means that it is out of time. This sometimes happens when something is hit causing the flywheel to jerk shearing the flywheel key. Remove flywheel and replace woodriff or slot key.

how old is your plug? try cleaning and regapping it or replacing it at any rate make sure it is gapped correctly also make sure there is no rust dust or debris is on flywheel or coil also the flywheel keyway does more than hold the flywheel in place it servs as a timing pin and sometimes the slightest wear on it can cause the machine to start hard but otherwise run great good luck hope you find the problem.

SOURCE: push rod loose
Very possible that the valve is stuck open and piston could have hit valve causing it to bend at the head. This would cause valve not to close completely. Would have to remove head and remove valve and most likely replace intake valve.

Most likely this is a valve problem caused by a carbon build up around the valves. This is not a job for the novice due to it being an overhead valve engine. Poor quality gasoline can cause this problem. I recommend that you always use white gas if it is available in your area. If it is not available try to find the gasoline that has the lightest yellow color. The darker the yellow color the more sticky varnish deposit that will be left behind. And totally avoid gasoline that has a orange color. The darker the color the more problems it will cause.
