It's very hard to flood a 60 so bad it won't start if it has decent spark. There's a pretty good chance you have weak spark and it's probably in the distributor. Your plugs are probably good with only ten hours on them. Turn the engine over so the points are open, turn on the ignition and flick a screwdriver around between the open points. Is there a little spark between the screw driver and the points? Does the big wire coming out of the coil throw a spark when you hold it 1/4"-1/2" away from metal while playing with the points with the screwdriver? If you can make a spark by playing around with the points with a screwdriver but there's weak spark when you crank it over you need to clean or replace the points. The screwdriver is merely doing what the points are supposed to do. If you can't get spark out of the points switch out the condenser. They go bad fast today. Jim Oh yes, let us know what you find.

iv had my 60 since 2008 never had much issues starting it, its started every winter and has fed 100 round bales a year, what I have did with it was re wired it has a new jd switch new points and conds a 12v resistor coil, I run my charged white wire off the middle post on the voltage regulator it charges at ten amps till full charged, I have only put new plugs in it once, only issue im running into now is carb trouble, cause they had a rigged up chock lever on the carb , but I got a rebuilt carb to try on it don't have the right chock rod to at the time
