Hi Rue, my name is ***** ***** having trouble today.I will do my best to assist you in resolving your issue. That engine once started creates it's own voltage through the magnetic pick up coil so removing voltage won't kill the engine using key switch,usually on these engines they ground the spark plug to head using a metal flip switch to shut off,,you could add another momentary push button close to ignition switch to accomplish same thing wiring one side to plug wire and other to engine block,,then either before or after key off hold button until engine shuts off. Hope this helps some if you are happy with my answer please provide a rating or accept answer as that is the only way experts get credit for our time. You may still follow up later if needed just come back to this page and reply and I will continue to asist. Regards spanky
