HI there make sure that the leads you are using are good quality and also check that the spark plug gaps are not excessive, as the spark will always find the easies path to earth, so if the leads are suspect as with the plugs, you will see this arching and cross firing of the leads to the engine as it will be a easiest path to earth.
