Fix the sled so you don't need it. If it has a choke, the choke isn't opening or it is plugged. If it has a primer, then you should be able to squirt enough fuel in there to get it running or flooded. If not, replace the primer.

The only reason you should need starting fluid is if it is -30 or colder and you don't want to waste much time starting, but even then it would be better to not use it at all. The only other reason would be low compression.

As far as using pre-mix. Why? The primer squirts straight gas directly into the engine side of the carb. Shouldn't make one bit of difference being premix or not.

If the the machine has a choke and no primer, put a primer on it and be done with it.

WD-40 is a solvent and while it burns, it doesn't burn very well. Better off just using gas.

brake cleaner shouldn't burn. The idea of brake clean is to clean the brakes and be resistant to heat, so the customers' car doesn't burst into flames the first time they apply the brake.
