    Hi ,that wire shall work  the ignition switch off ,it will push into the small square plug that is located next to the throttle mechanism that swivels and that the throttle cable attached too , if you were to attach the throttle cable and put it into the stop/engine off position ,the throttle mechanism shall hit the cable andcstop the spark to the ignition turning off the mower ,hope that helps .

    Whenever I do something that I’m not familiar with I always take loads of photos as I go along.😁

    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
