Stop switch

Hi All, we have a B&S V Twin Vanguard engine, the wiring Dia. shows a Stop switch connection , I donít see the need as terminals 1-3-6 are grounded in the off position.

I can't see the diagram to make out anything. If you are testing for ground through those terminals, you will have ground through many terminals when the key is off. One is likely the charging stator... it will show as a ground because it is a grounded wire wrapped all around the laminations of the stator. How many are grounded with the key off but don't have power when the key is on? The wire to the carb solenoid will show grounded with the key off but it has power when you turn it on. Same with the headlights if those are connected through the switch.

Sorry for that poor image, the question was why do I need a Stop switch? It shows one in that drawing,my thought is just make the connection at the tab on the coil if there is one on this engine, no need for any stop switch.

Many problems with your pic and lack of info...the electrical is going to be provided by the Equipment manufacture the engine is mounted on.
No model or type of the VanGuard or info on the equipment.
