I've got a 14hp Kohler Command Motor (CV14T) that has a bad backfire, and what seems like white smoke coming from the motor? I thought the carb might be stuck open and did notice it had a small flame come through the carb... any suggestions?

How does that effect the motor? Would that change the timing of it?

check valves just pulled valvle cover off a 16 horse kohler that was back firing when trying to start and rocker arm was loose not letting exahust valve open
