Ether can be detrimental to an engine if over used. As jim stated, a short burst of a second or less, will NOT hurt it. In cold weather OR if the fuel bowl on the carb has gone dry, you don't have much of an option other than to use a bit of ether to get these old girls started.
Don't overdo it, and don't lose sleep for what you just described.
Other's may disagree with me, but I always have a can around for tough starters.........I have yet to ruin an engine givng it a short squirt of the girl scout juice.................
