Like said, start with the ETC switch, there should be a very small gap in the contacts. I have seen 500 motors in the past that with the spark plug out had good spark, but under compression it just wouldn't hold up. I'd try throwing a new plug in it. Have you tested compression? Leakdown? Have you had the carb apart to verify there isn't something blocking a passage? I know it's easy to do, but starter fluid isn't always a good fix. let me know what you find, i'll do some more looking into it.
