John Deere 100 - hard starting

Ray I have a 1972 John Deere 110 Lawn and Garden Tractor with a 10 hp Kohler engine. It is very hard to start but runs strong once started. The engine turns and turns, fires once in a while and finally, after many minutes, I get it started. Once running I can mow my half acre yard and it runs great. If I shut it down I have the same problem starting when the engine is hot as when it was cold. I've replaced the fuel pump, cleaned the carb, changed the plug, points and condensor and even had had the head off. Valves look good. Very frustrating. Any suggestions?
bontai Joe I'd try tweaking the points setting.
