8.5 Honda won't start/run

Pulled the aerator out for the fall work,now I can't get it to start/run. Changed the plug and pull the bowl off new gas. It would run with a quick hit of starting fluid then stop,I did get to run and it sputter a little but ran and I plugged my yard .it seem to run fine but when I tried to restart it ,no go.

8.5 Honda 2 yrs old.

If it will fire on carb/choke cleaner, you need to pull the carb and clean the main jet and fuel nozzle. GX270?

Following is a link to a typical Honda carb repair--this happens to be from a GX390.

If it has/has spark after it dies.
1 Drain fuel tank
2 inspect fuel filter/fuel lines replace as necissary. Make sure inside of lines are clean.
3 Disassemble and rebuild carb MAKE SURE YOU REFERENCE THE RIGHT KIND YOU NEED although its prob a gx270 or replace carb. about $16-25$ yes i said a new carb is 16$
It is very important for you to post your results once the problem is solved so that people will be able to reference a solution to their problem down the road. YEARS may go by and someone has the same problem PLEASE POST YOUR "IT WAS FIXED WITH x SOLUTION.
