i will double check the compression. i'm fully aware as to why the thing is running off of starter fluid and not the gas int he carb. however, you do realize that if i can draw it through the intake which runs directly through the carb into the intake, it should be drawing it out of the carb int he same exact manner, i'm not injecting fuel into the cylinder it's drawing itself into the cylinder just as it would from the carb. This is an upflow carburetor meaning when i spray ether into the intake it's going straight up through the carb just as the fuel in the carb would. I'm now wondering if this is a spark related issue, i plan to take the motor off the implement tonight and get it ont he bench for a full inspection i'll let everybody nkow.
Either way it's very wierd that it will run off ether but not off of the gas that's going to the carb. also i cannot maintain it to run with ether, it will still die if i continue to spray it, then i can pull the starter cord and it will fire back up for 2 seconds again.
