Hi I’m fairly new to this site and I really need help, my 1978 ski doo elan won’t idle and bogs down when the throttle is pushed,I rebuilt the carb with a carb kit and cleaned it as well, the carb is a Tillotson HR. Please help!

Welcome
Sounds like the carb is still your issue, maybe fuel too?
we got it to idle yesterday and it still bogged a bit, but when I went to take it on the snow to see if everything was fine, it just bogged so much that it would quit and it wouldn’t move. It was like it wasn’t making enough power to move.

Is that the Tillotson that has the built in fuel pump? Or external?

Maybe bad gas? Maybe bad fuel pump? Maybe plugged fuel line or fuel pickup?
