If it's the one I'm thinking of -it has a vacuum operated shutoff valve on the tank. So your leaky -read stuck- needle and seat only leak when the engine is turning over.

Pull the carb loose and roll over and remove the float bowl. drop the float pin and remove the float and needle. Find the vacuum line to the fuel valve and **** it open to flush out the needle and seat. When the fuel runs clean, put the needle and float back on and open the fuel valve again. If the upside down carbs holds back the fuel- it's fixed and you can put it back together.

The starter engages and starts the motor fine when the motor is cold. however if you ride and try to restart the starter just spins and you can only start using the kick stater.

Where are the drain/fill holes for a 1995 polaris 300 4x4 2 stroke cunterbalance

The rattling noise when you first start your atv is most likely the starter bendix. The bendix is what actually engages the flywheel to start your atv. It can be an annoying sound, and should be checked out to make sure it isn't going to leave you stranded. It is located behind the recoil cover on the right hand side of your atv. Best option is to just replace it as most do not offer replacement parts. Let me know if you need any help, Daniel.
