How long does the tractor run before losing power? Couple of minutes, fuel flow problem. 20 to 30 minutes, ignition problem, probably the coil.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Hour and a half would place fuel flow out of the equation, as well as engine mechanical adjustments since the tractor would be well beyond normal warm up time.

Come back with a timing light when engine starts to lose power. Check for spark and quality of spark on each plug. Might as well check ignition timing, but I don't think that is the problem.

Swap coils from another tractor and see if the problems moves with the coil.

That has happened to mine once and what solved it by adjusting the air/fuel on the carburetor. I turned the screw to the left 1 full rotation which I guess added more air. Now tractor doesn't die out after running for awhile.
