Engine will crank but won’t start unless you spray starter fluid in it.

Fuel supply problem. Is fuel getting to pump? is fuel getting to carbs? Fuel filters clogged?

Take a fuel line loose at the carb, then place line into a container have some one crank to determine if you have fuel. If so the stone filters in the carbs are clog, if no fuel more then likely bad fuel pump. Just make sure if you have to replace pump that it has the proper length pump rod. Good luck

Also check for cracked rubber fuel hoses at tank and right rear wheel well.
