Do you know if your fuel pump is actually pumping fuel to your carburetor?

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

If you are getting fuel to your carburetor, but your engine will only start if you use starting fluid, this indicates you will very likely need to remove your carburetor, and give it a really good cleaning. Do your carburetor have a fuel shut off solenoid?
