I ran into a problem today while spreading millings in the driveway when I put the tractor under a pretty good load it would start back firing and missing real bad.

When I let it cool down and start it back up it would be fine until it got another load on it then it did it again so I parked it just curious as to what this could be Thanks guys

What about the battery, I would suggest having it load tested to start with, you can get that done at most any auto parts store at no charge to find out the condition of it. It might not be holding a good charge.

Check your condensor.  Could be it's loose in either it's mounting or wire connection or just bad.  This is what comes to mind first for me.

I think that tractor has a Kohler K321. If so, check your points gap and condition. I've had one of these engines start running like a dog and found out the points were the problem. Check the connections in the entire ignition circuit including the connection from the engine chassis back to the battery - terminal.

Did it do this at all when you had the mower deck on? It sounds like the others have some good ideas so far.

We had a S-16 do the same. Run hard for half hour, sputter out and then let it sit 20 minutes good to go again.  In the bottom of the tank was a brass screen, it would get plugged up and run the gas out of the line.  Took the tank out, pulled out the brass screen and just used regular line filter, no problems.

I hadn't thought of a plugged gas line, that sounds likely. My S-16 had a line filter on when I got it, wonder if the screen is in there yet.
