I'm not entirely convinced these would work at all on a seagull.....
How can something THAT small increase the ignition "pulse" 5 times, i just don't see it

Bottom line if your seagull ignition is on it's last legs, i dont think anything will help it, short of replacing the decrepit coil and clapped out condenser.


But...........you never know

who's going to buy one to see? (not me)

Back in the 1950's just using ordinary engine oil in motor cycle 2 strokes, we had lots of trouble with the plugs oiling up and fouling (16:1 mix)
One reputed dodge was to cut the HT wire, wrap the bare ends around a shirt button so as to leave a small air gap and tape the whole thing up.
Never tried it so I cannot vouch for it.
