Magneto type ignitions produce a spark with every revolution
of the flywheel, and will run until the fuel runs out, or the
ignition is grounded out, so the kill switch does that.

Hello red!

With the wire disconnected from the coil, at the coil end, you should have continuity to ground when the switch is "off". You should show no continuity when the switch is "on".
