Spark Plug Cap Trouble

I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS EVER ENCOUNTERED SEEING THE SPARK ARC TO THE ENGINE FROM THE SPRK PLUG CAP? I CHECKED THE CAP AND IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE A HOLE IN IT OR ANYTHING. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS COULD BE OR HOW TO FIX IT?

Is it the right front plug wire? if it is, then it may be arcing on the cable that lays near it. I had that problem on mine...

to fix it I bought a length of fuel line and slit it length-wise, then I placed it over the cable and secured it with zip-ties.

if it is not the right front plug then I guess you will need to change the wire out

best,
Stan

Just because you can't see a hole in the wire doesn't mean there isn't one just big enough to let current through it.

The wires either need replaced or do the fix Stan did until you get new wires.
