Lotus 340R starting Question

Hey guys,

Im having some trouble getting the Lotus started. The car sat in the garage for about 2 months without cranking up and we are trying to get it started up but need some help. The car is turning over but not starting. If we give it a shot of starter fluid it will start up and run fine. It will start up for a few more days fine but goes back to the same situation. We just replaced the plugs so thats not the problem.

Maybe something in the fuel system? Possibly the pump or filter?

We have tried for a while now and just need some advice on where to look to.
Any tech's in the Birmingham, Al area that anyone knows of?

Thanks, Mark

2000 Lotus 340R
--1.8L 190hp engine--Eibach suspension--#7 of 8--1400lbs=Track car

(Insert other random car info here)
