Craftsman LT2000

I have two Craftsman LT 2000. One has a Kohler 18HP and the other has a Kohler 17.5 and both backfire when I try to start them. I have cleaned the carbs completely. They both have the fuel selinoids under the carb, I took them off and hooked up power and ground them and they go in and stay in until I take the ground away are they working properly.

It could be several things, but if a new spark plug doesn't help, I'd suspect the flywheel key pretty fast.

Remove the flywheel bolt and use a flywheel puller to pop it off. Autozone and Advance auto parts rent pullers for free, they should have one and hopefully the right size puller bolts.
