Hello and welcome to just answer. The coil is most likely cracked and secondary voltage is leaking out of the case and arcing to the mount. Replace the coil. That will fix it. Chris

That is the 2nd new coil,what are the odds on that ? 2 different brands from 2 different places. Are there any other possibilities?
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 2 years ago
Very strange. Where on the coil is the arc coming from? Chris
