Craftsmen Riding Lawnmower with Kohler 15 hp engine runs fine, stalls after 10 minutes, won't restart until 2 hours later, then cycle repeats

I replaced the carburetor on my riding lawnmower after gas was leaking from it. It started just fine, but then after 10 minutes of using it, it stalled rather quickly with a single backfire. The engine was hotter than normal. I pulled the spark plug out, connected it to the ignition module and held it against a bolt head and it looks like it is not getting a spark. Could it be the ignition module? Or is the engine too hot perhaps because of lack of air flow (my air filter is looking dirty)?

It can be difficult to deal with your lawn tractor issues. Especially when your lawn most desperately needs a fresh cut. Below I attached a couple links that will help explain your issue. I hope these links are helpful!
