Default Re: Briggs and kill switch?

These can be wired straight to the sparknplug wire and ground so closing the switch shorts the spark to ground and kills the engine... most older Briggs and Tecumseh engines just had a metal tab with a sharpened spike at the sparkplug and to kill the engine one would just push this tab toward the spark plug piercing the wire cap if it had one and shifting the plug to ground... this was the typical setup on most these engines back in the 70's and early 80's...
