about a billion years ago I used to race VeeWee's & the "trick" thing to have on them was clear (or smoked) distributor caps. they were cool becuase every time the rotor would line up with a plug, & the coil would fire it would arc & create a spark that flashed as the car went down the road (we did not run "hoods"). SO........ does the car run? are you sure its not supposed to do it? How are you seeing it under the cap? have you drilled a hole in it to phase it?

that dont sound good. :cry: it does sound like its arcing in the cap then. is the coil in the cap or remote? if its remote then its a no brainer, replace the cap & rotor.
