Well, you need both air and fuel to mix, for it to run. Perhaps the starting fluid works because it includes a better mixture, and the problem is that when you "open the valve" you are getting gas but not air? Or not a good mix?

Have you cleaned the carb?

Yes, the carb has been cleaned.

Empty the float bowl on the carb and try again... I have a feeling that it'll work... especially with a healthy shot of starting fluid.

It certainly DOES sound like a fuel problem... might also try with a new plug.

Ancient gas may have clogged up the jets in the carb. If you can get the carb apart well enough to clean the jets, try that.
