Sounds like the timing is off. The easiest thing to check is the flywheel key. It is also the most likely culprit. Just remove the flywheel and check the key to see if it is damaged, replace it and you are in business. Good luck...Lee

check intake valves for proper seating. If the valves do not close completely it will allow the engine to backfire thru the carb. Another possibility is internal timing caused by the misalignment of the timing gears between the crankshaft and cam gears.

Backfiring


Backfiring is either burned valves or often due to timing slipped because of broken flywheel key/keyway.

Engine won't start and backfires


Did you loosen the coil when you changed the key? Check the setting between the flywheel and the coil. !0,000ths, I think.

It sounds like you are putting it into choke mode. The choke is usually all the way up on tractors. And it will make it backfire and flood out. Just rev it high enough to work and don't go into the choke mode. hope this helps.
