Talk about throwing the baby out with the bathwater! The tractor is a little hard to start, so you're ready to tear the engine down and do a complete overhaul? No offense, but that's just crazy talk.
First off, do you know what the choke does, and how to use it? Most carbureted gasoline engines require some amount of choke to start up cold, and start just fine warm.
The key is learning what your tractor wants at startup. Unless the previous owner can show you, you're stuck figuring it out on your own by trial and error.
Try giving it a little blip of choke at first, and see where it goes from there. When it finally catches and runs you might have to feather the choke on and off to keep the tractor running. Not enough and it will starve for fuel. Too much and it will flood out.
