engine cuts out


my rider cuts out and dies after about 15 minutes of run time, after it cools it will run for a few more minutes and then do the same thing, any idea
what's wrong with it?
i replaced the coil and the mower is still stalling out and will not run til it cools off. any more thoughts to what might be going on?

Sounds like the coil. I had this problem a few years ago. I would mow half of the lawn and then it would start sputtering and die. I would come back about a half hour later and finish.

I think the strands in the coil contract when they get warmed up, and don't make the needed connection. When it cools, they expand and reconnect.
