Hi, guys, a little puzzled about the way my tractor is misbehaving. Started it up, used the box blade for about 45 minutes to an hour. Climbed off to do something and a couple minutes later the engine died. Wouldn't start initially, then 10-15 minutes later started right up. Worked for another hour or so and the same thing happened again. Now I can't get it to start at all. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not much of a mechanic but it sounds like a possibility of a bad coil. Something about the windings getting hot and expanding stopping the spark. Eventually they just die.

What kind of fuses or breakers do you have? If you have circuit breakers they can heat up and trip then reset themselves. Had that problem with the Harley.

Then there is the fuel. Clogged strainer or inlet screens? Clogged carb? Vapor lock? (can you even vapor lock one of these tractors?)

I suspect the electrical first.
