Does the engine attempt to "catch" at all during a start? Backfire or cough?

Is this motor belt driven overhead cam, btw? More details on this specific engine please. I believe they used a SOHC or DOHC engine depending on year.
Model is a DOHC, belt driven.

Replaced all sparks and tested sparks through just sparking them out of the cylinder. It does not catch, cough or really try to start. The starter turns the engine over, battery is still running strong.
