Hi, I just got an Elan 300SS, with the 294CC
carb is a Tillotson HR143A. It started perfect for the first few days (one pull). Now after a few days, when I go to start it, it won't. It is getting fuel, and spark, thought it was flooded, cleaned the plugs, let it sit for a day, and it fired up, let it run for 10 minutes, shut it down, tried starting it the next day, same thing. No start. did all the same things (cleaned plugs, checked for spark, getting fuel.) all good. No start. HELP! [xx(]

Hey ELAN MAN. My guess is that it is the needle. Take the carb off and take a look. At least you'll be able to clean it if it isn't the problem. You probably have a major flooding issue due to the carb.

had the same problem with my brothers. We ended up putting a mikunie carb on it. Never had another problem. For some reason the the needle aways stuck.
