Running on starting fluid down the plug hole indicated correct spark timing
Running on starter fluid sprayed into the carb indicated ok valve timing

Doing both but not running on it's own fuel usually indicated a stuck / broken solenoid on the carb or blocked fuel inlet .

X2 on the afterfire solenoid if equipped, but I would check for power going to it.
You should hear an audible click too when the key is turned to the On position
