It's a 'make to kill' , which effectively shorts out the ignition circuit to ground.

You won't find a 'generic' kill switch - they're all slightly different, with some engine 'manufacturers' even using different types for motors built in the same year.

I remember a local instructor having a kill cord fitted to his lifejacket and this had around 6 or 7 different ends fitted, so he could use it on all the different motors run by his school.

Hi Guys, especially Aquatec, I have ordered the kill caps today from IMS as I had already emailed them before your advice. I will certainly come back to you for any other parts. Are you able to find a manual for this engine at all? I undersatnd they are very useful....?
