We'll leave the crosspost for now..... something that works great on
distributor cars is to swap the #1 wire and the coil wire in the cap.
Someone will have to be very sharp to notice, the car will appear to want to
start but act like the plugs are wet, checking with a timing light while an
assistant cranks the motor will reveal a perfectly timed ignition system.
If a kill switch is your choice, the switch should go on the ground
(switched) side of the coil. This switch can either gound this terminal or
isolate the terminal. Putting the switch in the powered side of the circuit
is too easy to bypass. Grounding the switched side of the coil can be hidden
in any tach wiring you might have. This type of kill switch will be much
harder to bypass and require diagnostic time that a thief doesn't usually
