while checking your timing, also check the firing order and wires aren't crossfiring.

If all the rocker arm and push rods are ok, then you need to check the camshaft. If the heads are still off turn the engine and check every lifter to be sure they move up the same amount. A flat lobe on the cam will cause a back fire.
