Easier to just turn the fuel off, ignition cutout switches were really designed for emergency stops.

There are only 3 manufacturers methods to stop the engine, all were fitted to different variants of the model, but depends which your particular engine has.

1) turn off the fuel
2) use the fitted ignition cut out switch
3) short the HT at the spark plug (a metal shorting lever was provided for this and obviously there was no spark plug cap fitted

2) and 3) are only really for a short term stop of the engine. 1) is best when it's finished running for the day.

Think most engines stop better with fuel shut off rather than a "kill switch". Hardly use the one on the Villiers on the mixer and never on the BPR.
