Grand River :
If you have decent compression, and are delivering fuel, the motor really should start reliably and promptly. Remember to use near-full throttle for the starting, then throttle back quickly when the motor starts.
It is not a good idea to use starting fluids (or "narcotics" as we like to call them here) as the motor will get addicted to them and you will need them all the time.
If you have to use narcotics, then you must, but only if you must.
