Dropping the tank, and the problem with the mufflers, are unrelated. The only reason a backfire would blow out a muffler is if it had a lot of fuel in it, and the fuel ignited. Check for a flooding problem with the carb. You may have stired up some loose dirt or rust while messing with the tank and, if you don't have a fuel filter, it could be the cause of the carb flooding problem.
