Gator don't won't to start. Will start if you spray starting fluid in breather. Have to keep choke on and it has a strong fuel smoke whenever it is running. I took the carb apart and ran a wire through the holes but it didn't help.Also replaced plug. Need some suggestions.

I gave $3000 for it and it has the top and windshield on it. ....

Not too many things it could be. Take the air filter system off the Gator and make sure it is completely open. Mice can crawl in the frame rail and build a nest in the intake. Other thing is the needle and seat in the carb. Sometimes the needle will get build up on it and won't seal the fuel inlet up correctly.
