Trouble starting a 18 HP Briggs and Stratton engine

The engine fires and backfires but I can't get it to start. Could it be that the timing is off. It is a Briggs and Stratton 18 hp twin. It has never been apart that I know of.

Hello Keith,

Doubtful that the timing is the problem. What did it do...die on you? Just decide not to start one day? Have you replaced the spark plugs? Briggs had several different 18hp twins...what one is yours?
