Yes, but you will need to to change your polarity, this is for negative earth only.
I have a set but seeing my ignition is not giving me a problem I have not fiited them as yet.
I'm told it is easy to do this. You have to remove the battery to short the dynamo a few times.using jump leads to reverse it's polarity (after removing the fan belt) you will then have to ensure you change the battery terminals to complete the job.

This cost is half of what the likes of Mini Spares charge so sounds like good value.
Let me know how you get on Very Happy
