Twin engine. Run a cylinder test. Loosen the spark plug wires , and with engine idling, remove one spark plug wire at a time. Engine should continue to run. If it dies when either wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. If this is the case, and engine is backfiring, I would remove the valve cover on the odd cylinder and check the valves. Backfiring would indicate that a valve is open when the spark occurs.
