Make sure your electronic ignition (modular, coil, or whatever you want to call it) is not the problem. Check this by replacing old plug with new (I'm sure you already did this), but before putting the new plug in connect it at the top to the ele ign wire, then lay it on the machine or any piece of metal, (screw driver will do) then try to start the engine. Watch to see if you have fire between the spark plug and the metal. If not it is the ele ign that isn't any good and must be replaced.

first i thought this engine had only one spark plug ?? second it's a kohler engine right ? this model has a coil (thing that makes fire for plug) that sits right on top of engine under cover this allows grass and other stuff to get inside it and cause things to overheat a bit this makes coil go out when things get hot in there but it usually will restart when it cools off after a few hours your gonna need to remove cover replace overheated coil and clean this entire area with compressed air to get things cooling again , ck out youtube for some of my easy dissassembly videos of this motor (kohler coil change)

John Deere X304 PTO Engagement Problem When Warm

Hi, check your belt tension, check all idler pulleys and drive pulleys for free rotation with the belt off and finally check that the belt is not bottoming out in any of the drive pulleys. If so, replace the belt. The blades should come up to speed imediately wether hot or cold and it sounds like your belt is slipping in one or more of the pulleys which drags the motor revs down until it grips. Regards Phil.
