Hello and welcome!My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
So the engine will run on starting fluid.. correct?
But it does have spark correct?
Ok, if the engine has spark but does not run on starting fluid, either the ignition or valve timing is off of the engine is flooded. You might want to disable the fuel system and run the test again. If you get the same results, I would check engine compression next.
No sir. Only if the engine ran on starting fluid.
Please accept my offer and call me
The mixture will ignite is there is fuel.. because it is flammable. If it does not run on starting fluid then the engine is out of time, or there is a base engine mechanical problem. You might want to try it again to be sure your getting the correct results.
Broken timing chain, crankshaft issue or camshaft issue..
The starting fluid test
