the unit in my avatar is an atlas, btu, i can find some parts from mtd,
my question is is that ignition key plastic? the key slot looks like a " T " slot
one wire goes to the coil& the other goes to a ground.
person i got it from had a metal key, just to use it this season i have just an on/off toggle in the dash panel. i'm thinking of relocating that toggle close to the top of the handle

may have answered my own question i'm thinking the plastic key seperates the leaves opens the circuit to run.....

A good move is to cut the wires tape them off then to stop the machine shut the fuel off! Using the kill switch with the crap gas we have will cause carb problems always turn the fuel off and let it run dry, at the end of the season remove the carb bowl and up out the fuel do not leave any in the bowl over the lay up season!
