@carpinojoe looks like your mower has a few more safety switches. It appears to have a clutch/brake and PTO safety switch.

Follow the wiring harness (colors) to determine the actual location. I would not cut the wire but use some jumpers with alligator clips or similar. Sometimes even some heavy duty paper clips will work.

The parts manual from here Murray Tractor Parts list and Location should also further help to locate the switches.
