First off, you shouldn't need starting fluid. Before putting your plugs back in, did you check if you had spark? Next, I had a similar problem with my Élan on Friday, I noticed that the plug was wet but also had little beeds of water on them (condensation in the gas tank). I emptied what little gas I had left in the gas tank and put some fresh gas back in and everything ran great after I bled the lines.
Ive torched the ends of the plugs before as well, but have also runa bit of sandpaper through the gap to clean the metal surfaces of the electrodes.
be careful with lighting off the jugs. There is a remote chance of the fuel -air mixutre in the crankcase being just right and lighting off unexpectedly. Then a nonstarting motor would be the least of your worries. Think shrapnel!
I say again, pony up for a fresh set of plugs....
