ya mine used to do the same thing. never used ether. but it was the injector they have alot of problems with them. but it only does it every once and awile then it does it all the time. you should be able to smell a hint of raw fuel in the exhaust even though it runs good once you get it started.

if the motor is not rolling over fast enough will not billed the fuel press to start to check the relief valve pull the return line and on start up you should have no fuel come out and to check the injectors you block them off one by one till it starts
