John Deere SX75 won't start

I have a 15 year old Deere SX75 rider that won't start.
I have changed the spark plug, new gas, new battery, disassembled and cleaned carburator, changed fuel filter.

When I turn key, it won't turn over. If I spray engine starter into carb, or put gas into carb, it will start until the gas or engine starter fluid is burned off.

Then it stalls.

Any suggestions????

Still sounds like a carburetor problem, or fuel pump problem (I think this one has the 9hp kawasaki engine with fuel pump?). Does this one have a fuel shutoff solenoid on the bottom of the carb?
