motor problems

I am stumped! I have been working on a ladies lawn mower as part of my lawn mower ministry. She said she got it stuck in the mud along the edge of the field. Had to push it out, then drove it over to the lane and washed it off with the hose. Washing only the deck and wheels. Ran fine up to when she parked it to wash it off. She started and drove about twenty feet, started to pop and back fire. This is a MTD w/BS 14.5 OHV. This happened last Thursday, 5 days ago. I went to check it out today still doing the same thing. Turns over kind of hard pops and back fires, never starts. Acts like when a fly wheel key is sheared. Checked that key was perfect. Did a visual for a bent valve, everything looked fine under valve cover. There are no points on this engine, so that's not a problem. Please post ideas you may have. Thanks Greg

Thanks guys, I will change out the fuel to rule it out.
Also if that dosen't work, Take apart the carb and clean everthing. Your almost guaranteed to find beads of water floating around in there.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
