If the fuel is getting past the fuel filter the issue could be a stuck needle valve in the carburetor. If the carburetor has a drain button on the bottom of the float bowl push it to ensure fuel flows freely for several seconds, if there is no drain plug or button pinch shut and disconnect the fuel line from the inlet to the carburetor, direct the line into a clean container and remove the pinch clamp, if fuel flows freely the filter is not clogged, if the fuel does not flow well replace the fuel filter.
To unstick a needle valve use a short blast of low pressure air (5-7 psi) into the carburetor fuel inlet, if the needle valve is stuck the air will tend to all blow back, once the valve opens you will here a change in tone. If you do not have access to adjustable compressed air try tapping the side of the carburetor gently, if it remains stuck you will have to remove the float bowl to gain access to the float and needle valve.

Why is my 2012 21hp sears 42" lawn tractor blowing smoke


If it is a V twin Kohler engine, you may have a blown head gasket. It is a common issue. Great engine but has this one issue. Kohler has a head gasket kit with improved head bolts. Torque specs are included. You will need a inch pound torque wrench and common hand tools.

Can you give me a ballpark figure on replacing a head gasket on a older Craftsman riding lawn mower...


there are many variables, since you didn't give any specifics. if it is an older, single cylinder, L-head engine, labor would be roughly 1/2 hour; if an older twin, L-head, about 1 hour; if it's a kohler, add about 1/2 hour; if it's a single, OHV, about 1 hour; if a twin OHV, 1 1/2 hours; if a kohler, add 1/2 hour. each shop has it's own labor rate. flat rate manuals will vary and are not realistic when dealing with old, possibly rusted or frozen bolts, which will increase the cost of repair. a new head gasket will usually cost between $5 to $30, depending on which engine you have. {some older craftsmans had a briggs laid sideways or an onan. these will require a lot more work and the labor would be higher]

Sears 19 hp twin 42 inch tractor, won't start if hot


Hi
Two things come to mind. First it could be not getting enough fuel when hot due to carb adjustment being too lean. That could be that the float level in the carb is set too low or the low speed jet is set too lean. When cold the choke circuit in the carb supplies the extra fuel required.
Second in some enjines that have low compression they start cold but when hot the compression drops below 60 psi and makes starting very difficult until engine cools down.
I suspect a fuel problem.
