I would replace the condenser if you already replaced the coil.
Those act up and die out when they get hot.

I'd verify the condition of all the wiring and connections in the ignition circuit. It's a good idea to do that on any older tractor. The chassis connection back to the battery is an often overlooked area where problems can come up, especially on a rubber mounted engine where a separate connection is required to make the circuit complete back to the battery - terminal. Points can do some strange things when pitted or out of adjustment. Safety switches with bad contacts, burnt, chafed, shorting or loose wires etc.

If you haven't changed your points yet, I would change them along with the plugs and condenser and possibly the wires. They are all fairly inexpensive but make a huge difference if already worn. I actually purchased an OEM Kohler tune up kit on ebay that included the plugs, points and condenser for under 15 shipped last year. It was an excellent investment.

I had problems with the micro switch on the PTO lever and brake too... that little switch caused me all kinds of undue stress lol.
