Hard Start When Warm

I posted about this in another thread of mine, but I figured I would start a new thread for this since I'm having trouble finding one for it.

I just nuttered my jeep, cleaned the carb, replaced plugs, wires, dizzy cap, and rotor. It ran real rough before all this and runs like a top now!
The problem I'm having is that after the engine has reached its normal temp, it is real hard to start. If I go somewhere, and let it sit for around 5 minutes, it has to turn over 9 or 10 times before it will fire off.
I want to think it's a fuel issue, but I really have no idea. When I cleaned the carb, I didn't put a kit into it, but it looks like that had been done recently. I haven't done anything with the fuel system yet. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!

I don't know why, but I just can't NOT own a jeep...

Spray or put some fuel into the carb when warm before starting it. If she cranks over then you have a fuel issue.
