Have you looked at the carburetor while its doing this? Is it getting fuel? Will it start/run on carb cleaner? If you're going to spray something down the carburetor to start it, use carb cleaner instead of ether, ether is more likely to damage the engine. If you can get it to run on carb cleaner, keep that can handy and actually clean the carburetor. Its been a while but I don't think those they put there on the 350 motor (I'm assuming thats what you're dealing with) were hard at all to rebuild if you just want to go the whole mile on it.
