When it will not start again, does it spin engine, just does not start? Blade switch may be killing the engine ,because it thinks there is no one in the seat. The seat and the brake switch, and the pto switch, make the run circuit. If there is break in the run circuit, the engine dies when pto is turned on. But it should restart without delay.

When I attemp to start it again it just spins. When I bypass the pro switch with a remote starter switch it dost the same.

Go to the engine coils, and remove the single kill wire, and see if you have spark.
