Yanmar 2GM stops engine by cutting off fuel supply. Kill engine handle is a cable control that teminates at the throttle linkage. Pulling the handle shuts off the fuel supply. It's a mechanicl shut off as opposed to an electric solenoid valve. Other Yanmar engines may have different shut off mechanisms.
