Yard Maching 17.5 hp not starting

I am having trouble getting my riding mower to start on it's own...when I say on it's own, I mean I can get it to turn over immediately by spraying starter fluid in the carb, but then shortly dies out...it seems obvious that it's not getting fuel, but don't really know what to check...I took off fuel line to see if it's clogged and put in new fuel, but still nothing....could use some help...thank you

Sounds like you need to take the carb. off then tear it down, Spray carb. & choke cleaner with the straw through ALL ports, passages and jets then blow it out with compressed air if available then re-assemble. Also install a new fuel filter.
