    This newer snowblower will only start if i spray either (start fluid in the carb throat. 2cyl. 21" (was stored properly in spring) I just replaced the fuel filter, and spark plug for the heck of it. Still no start. So i took off the carb bowl, cleaned and replaced, Still no start.

    Is the fuel turned on? Spark? is it flooded?
    Starting fluid is very hard on 2 cycles as it does not have enough lubrication for the 2 cycle engines, if you try to keep it running on the stuff you will damage the cylinder walls and bearings.
    I would never use any starting fluid on any 2 cycle engine.IMO:waving:

    It doesn't sound like your having any luck!!::cry:
    When you take the spark plug out what does it look like? Is it wet?
    What color is it?

    dont use either to start a 2 stroke!!,2 strokes need lubrication. use wd40,very flammable and will lube the cylinder walls:)
