Centura 3.8 HP Tecumseh lawnmower not working w/o starting fluid

We have a centura 3.8 HP Tecumseh lawnmower that we got from my in-laws. We put a new spark plug in, new oil, and new gas. We cannot get it started with spraying starting fluid directly into the top of the motor. Once we stop spraying, it quickly dies out. I dont think its getting any gas but I dont know much about lawn mowers. Think you can shed some light please. Thanks in advance for your time.

Old gas in mower


I tell you what,in your situation,when the carb is like that,I would look in to how much new carb is,chances are it will not run at full capacity cause there will still be junk caught in the carb somewhere.

If the oil level is too high smell the oil to see if it has gas in it. If it does the carb needs to be cleaned and the oil changed.
