Why does tractor runs fine til it warms up then stalls and wont restart til cools down

Check to see if you still get spark at the spark plug wire when this happens, common problem is a "Hot Coil" the coil windings breakdown under high heat and causes a stall until it cools down, just pull a plug wire place it near engine ground with a small gap see if there is a bright blue spark when you crank the engine over. If no spark, or it is weak orange spark..let it cool down then try it again if it then sparks bright blue you have a coil issue and it needs replaced. I have also had key switches over heat and stall the engine as well check your wiring connections on the key switch if its burnt looking there is also a problem.

1987 Ford f150 shuts off and wont start until engine is cooled off

To clarify, you said it runs for 20 min then quits, and it won't start again until it cools off. Have you checked for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure right after it quits running ?
These models have an ignition module attached to the side of the distributor that has a history of failing when hot. The coil and the pickup inside the distributor can fail too. Could also be a relay.

John Deere LT 133 lawn tractor quits running after about 10 minutes.

Will it restart right away or does it have to cool down? If it has to cool down, then run it until it quits. Next remove the plug, reattach the plug wire, and ground the plug to the block. Finally try to start it with the key. If you get no spark or very weak spark then the ignition coil needs to be replaced.

Let me know how it goes.

My McCulloch 3816 won't restart when hot. If I let it cool down about two hours it starts fine. ED

Try loosening the fuel cap for a moment, then try restart--if successful, you have a fuel vent blockage problem. Remove the spark plug when it won't start and see if it makes a blue snappy spark. If ok, pour a little fuel mix into the plug hole and see if you get a few pops. If successful, remove the rear engine case and inspect the fuel line for decay, and fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. At the worst, remove the front case to expose the carburetor which may need service and cleaning. Check the wire that runs from the ignition module to the ignition switch for possible insulation wear-through which can ground out the ignition. Hope this helps!

Spark plug gap mitsubishi delica van 1990

If the engine runs OK when cold and starts to miss when warm usually spark is the problem. Make sure the choke is open all the way. How does the plug look? When the engine quits then restarts and runs then quits again but at a shorter interval the ignition coil is the culprit. Good luck
