I missed that you had mufflers. And they look fine for the price. The popping may mean a small air leak in the exhaust system itself. Switch mufflers from side to side and see if the popping moves to the opposite side. Seal the flanges between the engine and muffler pipe and seal the mufflers on the exhaust pipe as best you can and see if it stops.
And you may need to clean the carburetor as you did say it was sitting around for a long time, or just drain the bowl and see what you get. If it's dirty, continue and clean the entire carb, otherwise reinstall the bowl and cut grass.
