Kohler Command Pro 15 WON'T START. HELP!

I have spent the last three hours trying to get this blankety blank blank to start and I cant' get anything. It's on a Exmark 32" WB Hydro. I have fuel because it will get the plug wet. I pull the plug and ground it and I have strong spark. It acts like it wants to start but nothing. I have pulled, and pulled, and pulled. It had been hard to start a couple of times out lately but now I get nothing. This is really making me upset since I have a ruptured disk in my back and pulling the cord this much is killing me!!!

Here is a list of what I have done....

1. New plug and air filter
2. Taken off, inspected, and cleaned the carb
3. Regapped the coil to the magnet as well and cleaned the connections. Gap
set at .010 inch. When I did this, I checked and the flywheel key is intact
4. Checked and adjusted valves. They were within .002 of spec to start with.
5. Took off the ground wire to the coil and tried with it disconnected to bypass the safety switches.

If anyone can help, PLEASE speak up. I really need this since I'm already busy enough and need this mower. Thanks in advance, Randy
