How can I make a kill switch for a ride-on mower?

I've just got hold of an old Westwood ride-on mower, but the electrics are a bit dodgy and will need re-doing.

What's the best / safest / most reliable way to make a kill switch for a 4 stroke tecumseh engine?


Thanks!

Hmmmm......

Temporary on button, single pole, one side to ground, the other connected to the coil input.

...piece o' sheetmetal with a hole in one side placed under a headbolt, near the sparkplug, bend to touch sparkplug and ground spark to engine block/head.

HTH....
