Briggs 18 horse twin backfire through carb

I have a Briggs 18 horse twin motor. It will not start and is backfire a flame through the carb. I checked the valves ( adjusted to spec and pushed down on them and none are stuck. Trying to figure out how to get my motor running.

This just suddenly happend after running fine? What model engine? How did you adjust the valves? Have you checked the flywheel key?
