See if you have a spark. Also, it would be a good idea to check the key in the flywheel, since it did backfire. It may have (partially) sheared the key.

That would affect the timing, and perhaps prevent you from getting spark. Your condenser might have shorted, too. Do you have a spare to try in there? You might also want to pull the tin and make sure the high voltage lead isn't damaged (mice…?).

The condenser does help provide a better spark by preventing the arcing across the points. The arcing is energy lost to the coil, so a weaker (or no) spark.
