How do you fit a kill cord to '90s Merc 2hp?

I bought the engine last year and the seller on here said he had one but couldn't find it. Can i get one from somewhere? Does it just replace the red stop button.

On my own it now planes pretty quickly on the back of the Avon 2.5m RIB

Its the old white cowled 2 stroke 2hp Merc with gears, choke, stop button and throttle, that's it.

I had to double take there, I misread and thought you had a 90HP Merc, then read the 2.5m RIB and how you plane pretty quickly!!!!!!
I thought there was something wrong with MY "pretty quickly".
But now I get it.
