Default Where to connect the black/yellow wire on johnson 70

I have a maxum xr1800. It has a factory mounted kill lanyard in the dash. The motor is not the orginal motor...the prior owner put a Johnson 70 (1985 I think) on the boat. They left the old wire harness in place and tucked the wires behind the rear seat. I found the grey tac wire and hooked that up, changed the tach setting to 12 pole from 20 pole and BINGO, the tach works now. Back to the kill switch fuction:

I have tested the kill switch itself, goes to ground and I have continuity all the way back to the stern. I ran the black/yellow along with the tach wire into the engine housing. The tach wire is hooked up, I need to know where on the engine to connect the black/yellow wire to ground out the ignition.

Can anyone help with this one?
