Default Quadra 42 kill switch

Trying to figure out how to wire a kill switch on a Quadra 42cdi. It has 2 bare electrical connectors coming out of the ignition. Also, will a DLE OPTO kill switch work on a quadra? Ought it 25 years ago and finally getting to it)

thanks
Carl

Good engine, Carl. You should get lots of time out of it. All the run time I have had on my 42 and I only remember one bare electric connector on the coil. My guess is either will work. Give it a test. Switch open - run/switch closed - kill. You can rig a servo operated limit switch to the circuit for remote kill. The opto kill will not work unless the 42 has been converted to electronic ignition.

Have fun with it.

Default Smoke?

Thanks. Do you run smoke on your's? I need to drill the crankcase for a pressure fitting and I am looking for a recommendation for the best location.
