I may be able to determine which engine you have based upon the information on your hood.

I'll have to discontinue this inquiry, the mower is located some distance from the house where it stopped. Thank You.

You are very welcome. I needed your engine information in order to give specific information relating to your mower. In many cases, overheating can be caused by a timing issue, such as a partially sheared flywheel key.
