Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! What is the full model number? Looking at the FC540 in a Deere 185 mower, it shows a one wire igniter, that can cause erratic spark when it heats up.?? Do you have a spark tester to see if the spark becomes erratic? If it does, replace the igniter.
