It works! Smart engineer and contester Bob AA6PW tried it yesterday afternoon and it worked as described. (See below.) He wanted to know if anyone had had better luck with the fuel cap air valve shut down method, which didn't work for him.

I was anxious to try this out. I had not drained the fuel from the
generator since field day. After work today I tried the easier method
of shutting off the fuel cap vent and after letting the generator run
for about five minutes, no luck and went to the suggested method here
of disconnecting the plug with the green and black wire. Just as
described after about two minutes the fuel burned out of the carburetor
and the generator shut down. Thanks for the tip. Would be interested
to know if anyone else has negative results with merely shutting off the
fuel vent cap.
