That is interesting!

I would say that this is in fact some sort of defect in the cap - but for two to
go in the same spot is just weird. I guess I should look at the driver side cap
and see if the same post is showing any signs of arcing. If it is then there
must be some sort of manufacturing defect in the mold for these caps.

Mine had an Italian brand name on them btw. Can't remember exactly what, but
they were physically the same as the OEM, but the electrode material was
different and they did not come with the ground shield - but my old ones fit so
I re-used them.


Oh - and
