Question about Poulan 42-Inch Steel Deck 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 6 Speed
I have the same problem with a 2 year old Wheel Horse XL 380H. I replaced the plug and the magneto. Now the shop says, maybe it needs the valves adjusted. It has the B/S 16hp Intek engine with OHV and AVS. And, mine too backfired a couple of times when shutting it down earlier this season. Crying shame, spend $2300 on a "new" lawn mower and get more problems from it in two years than the 17 year old cub cadet it replaced.
If blowing black smoke, before exploring costly parts, check the choke, if shut then will send fuel laden exhaust. believe is associated with the throttle/idle system.

Try taking the plunger off the fuel shutoff solenoid on the bottom of the carb
