Question about Toyota Land Cruiser
If you meant cutting the engine, you have the option of installing an inertia switch or kill switch since this is an old model diesel, cutting electricity to the engine will not stop it since it does not require spark to run. If you have a diesel engine installed here before the engine change you may use the same ignition set up, assuming it is the old diesel engine. Old diesel does not use electric power unlike new ones which has computers.

"The throtle body in my 2H ( EDIC controled ) it's complete diferent than any 12H-T that I've seen before .. "
The 2H with auto transmission has the same sort of pneumatic-controlled governor as the 12H-T, though the intake manifolds are quite different, as are the glow systems. Both share the use of the VSV to shut the engine off by closing the intake butterfly.
I obtained a 2H from a truck with the auto trans, but swapped out the flex plate and installed a ring gear, etc, to mate the 4-speed H41 up. I had a choice, it seemed, between leaving the auto trans specific injector pump in place, or removing it and installing the manual trans type of injector pump with the EDIC system.
I sure seems to me that a single VSV to shut the engine down is a somewhat simpler set than a fuel control relay and EDIC motor. The vsv is cheap and reliable, and they are used heavily throughout the Toyota range. Some are normally open, and some are normally closed. Early 40 series used vacuum switching with vacuum switching valves.
The fuel control relay is the weak link in the EDIC system and a common cause of problems down the line when it starts to pack it in. How much longer will these relays be available from Toyota, and at what price? I'm already finding it impossible to obtain early 1980's 40 series (and 60 series) glow relays, for example. That said, the EDIC system is otherwise quite reliable.
With the VSV system, Toyota uses an engine management computer to deal with the low oil pressure switch, among numerous other functions I'm sure. I wasn't interested in locating a 12V one for my truck for controlling a single function.
I eventually located a product out of Australia that does the job as far as the low pressure switch, the TM3 Engine Watchdog.
I'm sure that someone with knowledge of basic electronics would be able to solder up a simple circuit board to do the same thing as the TM3. I was able to rig up the TM3 to control my vsv quite readily; it can also be use to control a fuel shut off valve, or can be configured to power up a device instead of cut power. It's a pretty versatile doodad, and a lot cheaper than a new relay from Toyota.
