Thanks to all that have answered. I think the fuel flowing onto the frame, might have to do with a toggle switch I have for the electronic solenoid that KennyP mentioned. After the engine quit, I forgot to toggle the switch to off. So while the toggle is in the ON position fuel flows to the carb. I was reading what Firefight100 is talking about. So while the engine was trying to quit on me, I sprayed starting fluid into carb, and it did not quit at that moment. I thought at this point it was OK and then ran the tractor for about 5 mins more then it quit while I was using it. Maybe I should just let it sit there and let it idle and wait with the starting fluid to see if I can keep it running for say 30 minutes.
Overall I will use the info above and check for:
1. Gas cap venting
2. Solenoid. On the carb and the one right after the battery too.
3. Ignition coil. I have read about this and could be faulty especially after it gets hot and then the engine abruptly quits.
4. Go over all points mentioned by KennyP.
5. Fuel line issues.
