Sounds like you need a good old fashioned carb tear down and thorough cleaning. :good2:

Welcome edh.....

Here is a thought..... If it has the switch that shuts off the mower deck when you try to back up..... Maybe it is shutting of the tractor at odd times...
I guess this might only apply if it stopped like the ignition was shut off.... If the tractor will start and run WITHOUT engaging the mower deck that might be a clue....

Good luck...

Welcome to the site.
I had a yellow lawn mower the would stop after running a little bit come to find out I set the gas cap upside down on the hot engine and it melt the vent closed and it would vapor lock . Try loosening the gas cap when it quits and see if the vent hole is clogged or melted closed check your seat switch .
Good Luck
