1980 fxe backfire

I have a 1980 Harley fxe shovelhead, at a low speed it backfired. after stalled, when started sounded like s--t was barely moving thank god was only 2 blks from home. replaced spark plugs, wires, checked duel fire coil read 3.50ohms , but still bought a single fire coil ignition was good. still sounds bad. switched around plug wires on coil noticed one pipe was hot and the other wasn't. did it again and it was the opposite pipe that was hot. the bike was running really good before this problem. don't know a lot about bikes. old cars a little. don't know what is wrong. need help please thank you
