Re: quick kill switch question!
You don't need to run back to the coil, just to ground. Add a wire to the POINTS side of the coil, and run it into the cab to a set of ignition points. Make sure that the points are grounded.
Then take a little square of innertube and tie a stout string to it. Stick the innertube patch into the points, and tie the string to some part of your body.
If you get out you'll pull the patch from the points and that will ground the ignition, just as if the points in the distributor weren't opening. Also a reasonable anti-theft device. And cheap.
