You appear to have adone a systematic check.Here"s what I would do additionally.

Did you check to make sure you had the requisite FAT, BLUISH-WHITE SPARK, the color of lightning? check the spark right when it dies. A worn distributor bushing can cause poor running after start up so check the lateral play in the distributor shaft.

By all means check the float setting. M-S carbs are very sensitive to this adjustment.
Have you cleaned the carb thoroughly? That"s the secret to a good carb rebuild (ask GBinMT). That"s probably more important then new parts unless the old parts are obviously damaged or worn.

I called you a thief when you got this tractor,I stand by it I still say you stole it,now less then a week you asking for help. You have some big you know whats to rub it in like that. It runs but quits. You then post it is a fuel problem which it is just so you can rub it in on us more,even when you knew its a fuel problem.Snicker. It is the fuel problem. Stay the course and when it purrs like a fine machine which it is let us know.Did you check the air filter also? Have fun you lucky devil.
