toro snowmaster20 problem

hi i am new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can help me out. i have a toro snowmaster20, it was running fine till recently. everytime i go to start it now it will shut off on me. but if i start it and keep spraying start fluid into it, it will keep running. i am thinking i need a new carburetor, or a rebuild kit. if that is the case can someone point me in the right direction as to where i can purchse one online.

Toro website--go " look up parts "
type model #-find out what engine on your unit.
You can take it from there............
Note: your model # is not s-20
Look at back near bottom of unit for Model #

You will probably want to put a new diaphram and possibly the needle valve and seat in the unit. These are standard tecumshe parts available at most small engine parts stores. I did have an engineer from one of the Japan car manufactures come in and had put the oil in the tank first and then the gas. Pulled the diaphram plate and drained the oil and fuel. Reinstalled and worked fine.
