The problem is the float needle and seat are leaking. It is not shutting off the gas when the bowl is full. The bowl fills up, then runs down the intake through the intake valve into cylinder, past the rings into the crankcase. Fairly common problem. Just replacing the rubber tipped needle probably will not stop the leak. The pressed-in brass seat needs to be pulled out and a new one pressed in also. Possibly there is some trash or rust in the carb that has gotten between the needle and seat, but in my experience, it usually takes replacing both to fix.

Go to your local auto parts store and buy an inline spark tester if you don't have one.
Next time the engine stalls, use the inline tester (goes between spark plug and plug wire) to see if there is spark. If there is no spark, then most likely the engine has overheated the ignition module. Check the oil level, low oil level will cause overheating. Check the cooling fins, clogged fins will cause overheating. The ignition module will need to be replaced for a long term repair. Make sure to correct any overheating condition also. When/if you replace the module, it is a good idea to inspect the flywheel key. It is located under a very large nut on top of the engine. If the flywheel has rotated on the upper crankshaft, the flywheel key (aluminum) will have been damaged. This also can cause an overheating situation.

I dont have all your anwers. In my experience, Kohler frequently has wires to start, run and stop the engine. They also frequently have a low oil and/or high heat control (engine shut down). Also expect a wire from the charging system. On your tractor, you probably have similar plus 'operator presence' wires. These wires require to you to be sitting in the seat for the machine to operate - a seat switch for example. On my tractor, I can depress the 'brake' (which isnt exactly a brake in fact) and the engine will run when I dismount. However, if the mower is engaged, no matter what, if I get off the tractor, the engine shuts down.
You will have to determine what every wire is for and connect it properly. You may lose some engine 'functionality' or tractor safety features. It is never easy to put a Ford starter on a Chevy. Good luck with your project.
