Ok, well we know that we need, fuel which we have plenty of. We need spark (do you have that?) and we need compression (have you done a comp. test?) Im not sure which style carbs you have, but i would check the carb syncronization. Also when you reinstalled the carbs after cleaning did you make sure you counted the number of turns of the screws in the side of the carb? And then reinstall them with the exact same number of turns? Did the sled run right after you cleaned and reinstalled the carbs??????? If not then i would take the carbs back off and make sure you reassembled them correctly.

I'm just lookin for a little more information to try to help ya out. If you could give a more detailed description about whats goin on i might be able to help you out a little better.

Did you try to start it while holding the throttle partially open? like you would when its flooded?

Let me know whats goin on

Try pulling the plugs and give a little squirt of fuel down the cylinder. Assuming you have already determined there is spark. This will tell you if your fuel pump/carbs are delivering fuel or not. If it catches first pull then you need to find out why there isn't any fuel getting to the cylinders.

I also had an intermittent problem when working on a twin A/C. It had fuel, spark and compression but turned out to be the shaft key on the flywheel. It would spark but completely at the wrong time and wouldn't start. Once the key was replaced, the timing went back to normal. It was masked by the fact that each time you pulled it, the flywheel turned on the shaft giving inproper spark timing.

Just a couple thoughts anyway. Good luck.
