LC4 '90 backfire's?

I had to replace the stator of my old LC4 600 from 1990.
While i was busy i took of the entire top part of the engine.

When putting it all back together it took great care and i follow all these steps:

I mounted the engine back into the frame and i was confident that it would start.
So i sprayed a tiny little bit of break-cleaner fluid in the air-filter, did 3 kicks with the decompression on like always.
Then one strong kick at the right moment AND my air-filter was on fire

So i think i messed up the timing, but i can't seem to figure out how or what.

I am sure everything aligned just like the picture below, would it matter if i am just a millimeter off?
Other thing is, could i have messed up TDC-C with TDC-Intake? So the spark is firing on the wrong stroke? Or does the spark always fire?

Today i took of the cover and took a look at the stator.
I noticed that when the piston is at TDC-C then stator is 180degrees off.
So this means i messed up the timing on the chain....
Ill turn this around and try again.
