Yes, they can be moved, but not easily. You will need to rewire them if you 
move them.

Sounds to me like you have a bad coil as you mentioned before that you 
replaced the PSOs. If you swap the connectors on the PSOs and the dead 
cylinder does not move then its a bad coil. If it moves then its the PSO.
