Got curious and looked at a parts diagram. I got a dollar that says condenser (2 required).

Edit: Following this thread. I think I'm going to lose that buck! (not a surprise).

I'd wait for Pappy to be sure, but it's nothing stock that I've ever seen... maybe some kind of magneto conversion ? Pull the flywheel and show us what's going on under there......

Interesting.
One thing I can tell you is that they were installed at some point "down the road".
Possibly for RF control.
Do us a favor if you are so inclined and take a closer photo of them and the wiring and where the wiring comes from and goes. Just interested to know but these are nothing you need to keep on the engine.
Thanks!
