Ether (starting fluid) is ok, but it is very light and has almost no lubricating qualities. In fact, if used in high quantities it can wash the oil off the cylinder walls (extreme case). So like they said, use it in moderation. You might want to try using WD-40 and see if that works instead. If it does at least there will be some lubrication.

The pumping the accelerator trick is a better idea if that works for you.
