Although it's about three years old, operationally it's almost new as I have relatively few hours of running time. The last time I used it starting was similar to when it was brand new so I don't think it's something such as the flywheel key. My thoughts, as suggested here, is that I'm flooding it so I'm going to give the techniques suggested her a try. One suggestion was shot of carb cleaner in the cylinder or carb and my question is if carb cleaner is similar to starting fluid? The reason I ask it that I've read that starting fluid can be pretty hard on the engine.
