Yanmar 3YM30 vs. 3GM30 Fuel cut-off cable

To All,

I just replaced my Yanmar 3GM30's with 3YM30's.... the 3GM30 had a "fuel cut-off" cable at the instrument panel so I could kill the engines by pulling the cable-handle out and I believe kill the engines thru fuel starvation.

I have two cables flying "loose" now in the engine rooms.

Does the Yanmar 3YM30 have the same set-up ("connection") somewhere? If so, where is it located.

If not, is then the 3YM30 just a electronic cut-off at the instrument panel?

Thanks much for any help in this matter.

Electric only. There's a kill button on the instrument panel. It activates a solenoid that cuts off the fuel. There's also a manual stop button, but it's located on the engine, aft of the air intake.
The future ain't what it used to be.

if the solenoid shuts off the fuel (by zeroing the rack) then a cable can do the same thing, provided there is a lever available to attach it to.
