If there is gas in the oil you drained from crankcase the carb is really dumping fuel(did you see black smoke?) If your carb has a drain plug drain it. If not you will have to take off the carb bowl and clean it. Check float operation, turn on fuel work float by hand to make sure gas shuts off when float rises to level position. If not may need needle and seat kit. Or adjust float.

Hi, I have a John Deere Z225 with an 18.5 Briggs

Although, this does sound like a fuel issue due to past experiences I want to say the problem might not be fuel at all, but before we go that route try one thing. On that particular model I believe the gas cap is vented, if so try running it till it acts up, then remove the gas cap for a moment and see if the engine returns to running normal, if not I believe your coil is going out. I have seen alot of these engines recently where the works fine but when the get hot they quit functioning all together or only function part of time which in your case would indicate why it is missing and fowling the plug. When these tend to do this after they cool back down they function properly again until they get heated up again. I hope this helps you.

Poulan Pro model 185H42ST dies after 30-45 minutes mowing

Put a carb kit in it. If that does not work replace the gas cap they are supposed to breath and if they get clogged it will create a vacuum in the tank starving the engine for fuel.
