Briggs 6.5 HP Start problem

I have a 6.5 briggs on a perma green. I cleaned and gapped the magneto, but when I go to start it, the pull cord is hard and irratic to pull and the carb kinda pops on occation. Did I do anything wrong on reinstalling the magneto (didn't seem complicated) as far as a timing issue. Thanks.
