if you had water in tank and then de rusted tank and prob used more water or some kind of solvent I bet there is still some fluid in there. there is space below the petcock to trap fluids you'd literally have to flip the frame upside down to completely drain and then let air dry for a few days. I like to cheat with a heat gun on low in the fill hole to help evaporate the residual water.

the starting stopping with backfire out intake and exhaust sounds like a water in gas symptom or maybe your timing is a hair off.
