Another idea, did you do a compression test on all the cylinders?
I agree with all of the clean out the internals comments.

If you could mow real early in the morning you might be able to get by for awhile. Good Luck, and stay hydrated, Rick

that is a real possibility,have seen many freeze plugs corroded on the back side and start leaking from buildup in the water jacket,it's not hard to pop a plug out and take a look
The block was 1/2 full of sand in the water jacket.

Thanks for all the info,
I went out and mowed with it last evening/night, it was around 8:30, I mowed till dark which was 9:30 and I didn't have any trouble with it overheating.
I installed a air conditioner filter over grill to help keep the straw and gunk out of the radiator. It seemed to work really good and it only cost $2.49
All was going great with the tractor and mowing till the mower broke a belt . I knew the belt was about shot when I started and I was surprised it lasted as long as it did.
