:bonk: Someone put deisel instead of gas in the fuel tank. Started the tractor up and it backfired.
Is the engine toast?

Yeah it should have hurt it. Worse case it would foul out the plugs. But as dj2cohen said just flush out the tank, put fresh gas in and spry some carb cleaner in there and then let it run for awhile and you should be fine.
