There is a difference between what you said yesterday: " Problem was still lack of power on acceleration, some back firing, seemed to run better at full throttle then half." and what you said today: " the tractor ran great for the first 30 to 45 minutes, then there was some hesitation followed by lack of power at all RPM's"

Maybe the difference is that I misunderstood you.

This is what I suggested: " If the tractor starts & runs fine for 30 minutes or an hour then cuts off & refuses to re-start, and you checked for spark at the plugs & it had no spark at all, AND you have the correct voltage at the coil thatís a good sign that you have a bad coil. Let it cool off, restart it & if you have a good spark, odds are itís a bad coil. "

Did you check for spark as soon as it stopped running?

Yes, you could have a defective could also have a defective ignition switch too as steve va pointed out. (see tip # 50)

Save the "defective coil". Next hot day when you feel like fooling w/ it, put it back on the tractor.
