Glad to see you had a good set of insulated pliers handy.

I guess you don't know that all you have to do is take the priers or even a screwdriver and ground the tip of the plug to the head of the engine to stop the engine. It is not necessary to remove the plug wire. Early engines just had a spring lever that the spark plug held in place and to stop the engine you simply pressed it over against the tip of the plug. No need for anything insulated as long as you didn't tough the tip of the plug with your hand before the spring lever.
Pulled the big ten out today and hooked the disc up, broke up the ground for some new grass and all in all it do really good!
Also a safety issue: if you are going to pull that disc off the lift lever, which is improper, you need to run an arrester chain from the disc down to the draw bar to prevent the tractor from turning over backwards onto the disc should you happen to hook it on a big root or a gate post or something. Standard safety practice is to pull nothing from a hitch point above the axle.
