1545 jd mower

Hi Craig, sorry to hear your having problems. the first thing to try is running the machine with the fuel cap loose. The cap has a vent that allows air into the tank as the fuel is consumed.

Ensure that the cooling shrouds are clear of and grass / debri buildup causing it to over heat.

If those fail, it is likely that you will need a new ignition module. As the module heats up it expands. if there are any weak spots it will cause a broken internal connection when expanded. When it cools off, it contracts and the weak connection is restored.

Lt1050 black smoke after 15 minutes

The black smoke and black spark plugs indicate that the engine is running very rich (ie too much fuel). This could be caused by the choke not opening fully after the engine starts and the fuel mixture is too rich OR the fuel mixture setting is opened too far.
Check the choke lever, make sure the choke is fully open when the choke is in the running position.
When the engine is running with the throttle is in the 3/4 rev position then adjust the fuel mixture to get the highest RPM.

Scotts by john deere riding mower - 220 hours, 17.5 HP, 42" cut, Briggs & stratton engine -- New Strarter, new battery, good fuel... will turn over but engine will slow down then stop, will not...

Very high likelihood you have fuel line problems. Disconnect primary fuel line from bottom of fuel filter and blow compressed air back up the fuel line to the gas tank. This will clear the line of any trash. Reconnect fuel line to filter. Then remove spark plug and spray a couple of sprays of WD-40 into the cylinder.. Re-install spark plug and then restart. WD-4- will act as a starter fuel and will start the engine for enough rounds to get fuel pump to working to normal run.. Good luck.
