I have an areins gt 17. when trying to mow the grass it runs great until it gets hot, as soon as it gets hot it looses power and feels like its running on one cylinder. Can any one help me? My best guess is the coil maybe??

Yes, sounds like a coil breaking down.  Do clear your cylinder fins of any trash buildup too though while in there.

Poor points gap or warn points can produce the same symptoms. Check the gap or replace maybe?
