    I may be wrong on this, but i was always told, you NEVER EVER use starting fluid on a 2 stroke!!

    Jeff try different starting procedures but I can tell you this. If you keep useing that starting fluid you won't have to worry about that motor starting before long.
    Tell me how you go about starting it and what kind of plugs do you have in it and what they are gaped at.
