Old Cub Cadet (Kohler) quits

Please help. I refuse to take it back to my dealer. It runs and cuts great for about 15 minutes or so and then just quits and won't crank back up. It can sit there for several hours and then crank and do the same thing all over again. I just replaced the fuel pump and it was serviced at the end of last season. What could it be? Thanks.

Sounds like a coil problem. Post model #s ,engine ID #'s . Does it have spark when it shuts down ? And welcome to LAWNSITE !

After it quits, it will turn over but won't start. It is a model 2135. Don't have the engine numbers but it is a 12.5 hp Kohler.

I'm leaning toward the coil also. Have you tried loosening the fuel cap when it does that? Might be a bad tank ven????

Thanks for the replies. It does not get spark trying to restart after it quits but after it sits up a while, it does get spark and cranks right up. Does this mean it's definitely the coil? Or could it be some other ignition problem?
