Forgive me for asking but do you have the fuel urned on at the sediment bowl valve? I have taught myself that a tractor will not run if the valve is closed. I try really hard to shut off all fuel on my gas tractors when they are parked.

Yes the fuel is turned on I have the habit of shutting it off every time I shut tractor off so it is always the first thing I turn on when I start the tractor

Are you certain fuel is flowing into the bowl? Had 1 stick closed on me and not allow fuel into carb.

Only thing can think of is go back and check over what you did.
What comes to mind first is have you checked the float adjustment or tried tweaking it a bit?

I don't know if the 60 has one on it but on my dads 2010 there is a carburetor fuel inlet elbow and strainer assembly that plugged. Fuel comes out the line but that plugged strainer prevents it from getting into the carb. Just a thought for your consideration

I’ll have to check that but I don’t think there is one but I thank you for the idea

I will add, Make sure your float needle is not sticking or stuck in there. Sometimes those new float needles are prone to stick. I have had to change back to my old float needle, because the new one would stick, and cut off the gas, once the float pushed it closed on one carb i have.

Fuel, Air, Spark.

You're missing at least 1 somewhere.

Put some fuel in a squirt bottle, pull plugs, squirt a bit in each hole and reinstall plugs. Try starting it.

If nothing, spark or compression [timing] is missing

No I did start when I put gas in the cylinder but wouldn’t stay running
This makes go back to the carb rebuild.
If it would start with gas put in the cylinder and not with either sprayed in the intake.
Don't take this the wrong way, but I've known of it happening.
Did you stuff a rag in the intake deep enough outta sight to keep things out and then forget about it?
What about air leaks where the carb mounts?
