Craftsman platinum 7.25 runs for 30-40 min then dies won't start again and stay running until it's completely cool. Clean carb replaced spark plug and filter what's next. Bad valve or vaccume leak?

Hi There My name is Larry I am a small engine repair man in Ontario Canada. It seems like you might have a Bad ignition coil.
In general the coil heats up as you use it and with that sometimes the wires in the coil head loose contact and stop producing spark.
Since this is a sealed unit you might have to change the coil.
the only way to be sure is to use it until it stops and then immediately pull the spark plug and look for spark when you pull it over.
Now I am presuming the craftsman has a Tecumseh engine the only way to find out is to contact your local small engine shop with your model and type number and ask for a conversion because sears do not give you the manufacturer with their model.
Hope this helps.
My email is if you cannot get an answer from your local shop--I would be glad to do it for you.
Good luck

I mixed up one spring and the mower idles low on craftsman eager-1 5.0 22 inch cut

I think that model may use the Tecumseh engine and carburetor application. Here is a diagram of what your machine (carb/choke and governor) should look like.

I don't know what oil type to use for a Tecumseh 8.0 hp engine

Tecumseh recommended straight 30 weight (30w) for summer use. You can use 10w30 also.
5w30 for winter use.
Use a heavy duty oil because air cooled engines run hotter than you car engine. A brand like Briggs&Stratton, Craftsman, Kohler.
I have used full synthetic like Mobil One with great success also.
If you have any other questions, please ask!

I have a Sears Craftsman mower with Tecumseh, major oil leak

On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.
