    I have an old trac vac unit and the motor hasn't been used for at least a year. It came with a mower I just purchased. anyways the motor is a 5hp briggs I/C, I can't get it to start unless I spray a little bit of ether in the carb.
    Any way to get the motor off the ether? any advice would be great thanks.

    remove carb and tear it down. spray it out with brakleen, blow it out with compressed air - reassemble. drain fuel tank add fresh fuel and she should run.
