Try adjusting the magnito. AND - - try removing the screw that holds the bowl on the carb- - look for tiny holes in the bolt or screw - [ call it either] - then run a tiny wire in the holes and blow them out - blow hard -- then replace it. Be sure the o ring is on correctly too.

Adjusting the magneto or coil attached to the spark plug wire is a good idea but they tend to fail rather than go out of adjustment. You can purchase a spark tester at a dealer like and adjust the tester to 12,000 volts. If the ignition coil will not jumt the gap replace the coil. They are about $75 and will fix your issue.Best wishes

The engine stops after a half hour of mowing and will not start until it cools down, after which the cycle repeats itself

engine getting hot. Take rope pull off and clean off all the air fins on the cylinder block, use air how and do a good cleaning. If flywheel still have all the cooling fins it should help the problem or even solve it. Keep mower airways clean.

Obvious solutions won't start Lawn Mower!!!

Sounds like it's a fuel issue.
After the Carb rebuild, you put gas in the tank and started it up immediately. and ran it only 30 seconds.

If you look at the gas tank now, is it empty? Is there gas flowing out by the air filter? You sounds mechanically smart, just wondering if you messed up something with the carb rebuild and gas is flooding up into the carb. Check the Oil again, is it overfull from gas getting into the oil?
