I did some work for a friend and cleaned the carb for this honda engine (that was seized) its 11 hp Gx series i think the intake valve is sticking open (or burnt ) i removed the Valve cover and the valve is not closing all the was causing it to back fire thru the carb It had wicked compression but is now not as strong Valve problems ?

It could be a valve issue. These engines you want to make sure the valve lash is set correctly. did you happen to check the valve lash with a feeler gauge while you had the cover off?

Also make sure it doesn't have a stuck or bent push rod going to the valve.
