I have recently purchased a Massey Ferguson 135 (gas engine) and running it after dark for the first time yesterday noticed a spark jumping from the smaller two coil wires to the center wire(that goes to the distributor). It appears to occur in time with the firing of the ignition. Do I have a cracked or worn-out distributor wire boot, some other form of electrical short or what? The engine seems to run fine, but this doesn't look right. Can anybody tell me what's up with this! I can be reached at Thanks! Glenn

Electrical potential (the spark) will follow the path of least resistance. Things that will create an easier path at the coil are as follows: -- Bad plugs with way too wide of gap. -- Bad wires. -- Contamination on the surface of your coil like soot or metal dust). -- A breakdown in the coil insulation.

I'd check out your plugs and wires, clean the coil and if the problem continues then replace the coil.

Good luck.
