Seems like the rebuilder has done something wrong. Most obvious, does the choke work? It could be compression, it is worth checking, anything over 90psi is OK, if it is low, re-set the valve clearances and check again. If compression is good, clean the carb again, just hope the re-builder didn't fit parts wrongly, or the wrong parts.

Just a thought, fit a new plug first, surprising how often this is a magic cure.

Check to be sure choke is closing all the way. If Its getting stuck partially open it will do the same thing.

Sounds like your choke isn't working and not dumping enough fuel into the mixture on cold start...
