If the mower has a shift knob control for "Start" "Run" and 'Stop', the kill switch will be on the end of the cable that leads to the throttle bracket. If the mower has the safety handle that shuts off the mower when it is not depressed, the kill switch will be at the end of the cable that leads from the handle to the engine. If the mower is operated with an on-off ignition switch, the kill switch wire will be spliced to the switch "off" wire some where between the throttle cable and the switch.
