Question about Porter Cable Garden
I change the oil, the spark plug, the start to switch, and carburetor! Indy backfired putter and won't start. I bought it used wasn't turning so I used some JB blaster to the spark plug hole to get free.
check the fireing order of your plug wires u most likeley crossed a few wires and put them in the wrong order if u r looking at the front of the vehicle the front 3 cylenders are 2,4,6 starting from the front of the moter and the back 3 cylenders are 1,3,5 and the coil packs should be marked as to wich cylendr they go to if not the startin with the top coil pack the top plug wire pin is num1 and the second is num4 the next coil pack is 5 being the top pin and 2 being the bottem pin on the coil and the last coil pack is top pin cylender 3 and bottem is cylender 6. hope this helps

Check the chassis wiring whe it enters the side cover on the ignition side of the engine. There is supposed to be a rubber grommet there. Soetimes that grommet gets kicked loose where is comes out of the side cover hole and the wires chafe to the point that they ground out the ignition module.
Also looks for bare wires under the gas tank around the ignition coil module. Everything your describing points to a chassis short to ground.
Also the problem can be in the handle grip with the kill switch or a bad kill switch.
It is probably time to break out the Ohm meter and start chasing wires.

Exhaust leaks near the exhaust port can draw air into pipe on deceleration and detonate any unburnt fuel leaving engine, causing backfire and high temps.
An overly lean fuel mixture on the engine can make decel backfire worse too.
