MTD snowblower-no start

MTD snowblower model #317-140-372. Was running fine. Got bogged down on some heavy snow and stalled. Will not restart. Will only backfire through the carb after first few pulls. Replaced spark plug and checked spark. Checked for fuel- found slight restriction in the gas tank-cleared. Took off fuel bowl on carb looks clean. Plug gets wet after many pulls of the rope. Have fuel and have spark but not starting. Timing? Valves? Any Ideas???

wonder if it sheared the flywheel key and messed up the timing?
