Never had on older rigs, but my newer Kohler V-twin will do that if I don't let it idle and I guess it cools some before shutting off. Hi speed just off, will make real ban g in a second, let it run at idle some and sometimes get varying bangs or None.  NO other issues involved, so good I guess!

My Tecumseh will do that if I drop it real quick, It's still sucking a lot of fuel while the timing is changing so it backfires. Probably similar to what you are getting.

What RPM are you shutting it off at? I hate seeing people shutting there machines off at higher rpms. It continues to pull fuel into the combustion chamber when you shut it off. Good way to wash out the rings. I Always shut my stuff off at idle and if I work the engine hard I'll let it cool down at idle for a bit before shutting it off.

 

Could be running a bit to lean or the muffler is to small for the engine. Is it running hot?

Thanks for responses everybody, well I shut it down at idle, the engine does not run hot,it runs almost perfect.that link tecumseh put on here has some causes,with that and the good people here I'll get it figured out. It's kinda funny,i shut it down, get off the machine,take a few steps, then POP.

Carbon in the muffler can work like a glow plug

The Koehler single 20 hp on my straight will do it if I lower the throttle fast, and sometimes when shutting down. I cut mine off at high rpm and no pop.

Neither of my M/W 16's pop, but I have a fuel shut-offs on mine.  I turn the fuel off and let them idle to cool down until it stalls.  I credit this procedure with saving me from lots of carb clean outs.  Shut my Oliver Super 55 down the same way.  Have not had the carb apart on it in the 10 years I've owned it.

Hello, I'm new at this old tractor stuff. I bought a M/W Gilson model 33420A and need to find the diagram for hooking up the hydraulic lift to the mower deck. Any help will be greatly appreciated. You can answer on here or message me on facebook.
