Timing on a briggs and straton

I was fixing an oil leak on my craftman rider and took the engine apart to change the lower gasket and messed up the timing. I took it back apart and there were two dots on the crank gear and the valve gear I matched them up and put it together and now it back fires into the carburator. The engine model is a 28n707. help

I'd give the flywheel key a check to make sure it didn't shear in the process, that'll throw the timing off.

Thanks for replying but I already checked the fly wheel key and it is in good shape any other ideas?
