Default Need Help with KF82 engine!!

I have a 91 club car with a KF82 flathead motor that was running before I replaced the rod in it and when I put it back together now it won't start. It is backfiring through the carb. I have aligned the marks on the camshaft and even tried turning the cam 180 degrees to see if that would make a difference. It has good strong compression and consistent spark. The only other thing I can think of is that I switched the flywheel with the one off my 86 Club Car which also has a KF82 motor, Could that be the reason this engine won't start? I have been working on this for several weeks now and am at my wits end with it!! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

The last time I had this happen the motor was turning backwards. check your rotation to see if it is correct.

Your on the right track sounds like a timing issue? Good Spark, Good

Compression, Try the old flywheel and also make sure it is wired like it was

before the rebuild.
