British Seagull genuine plug cap pictures

Seen here its a really well made helmet type plug cap that really covers the plug, its branded British Seagull, so is the genuine part. New ones are still available.

Seen here on the Seagull 4.5 hp motor (for sale) note the rubber boot over the cable to cap end.

The spark comes from the flywheel, check the black plastic cap as it enters underneath, the cap is retained with a stainless plate and screw. The alloy handle with the knob is the clutch control, it works too!

Note how clean this engine is now, the alloy and bronze parts have been removed and stripped, bead blasted  clean before inspection and reassembly. New stainless large washers are being refitted to the thumb screw ends.
