dist cap & wires

I installed my new 8mm plug wires into my stock cap.
after a few minutes they tends to "pop up" a bit.
they are still making contact.
can I just bend them a bit?
thanks as always

Sure - take a screwdriver and "spread" the metal connector inside the wire boot just a bit to make it fit tighter.

take a pin or needle and poke each boot at the cap as the wire is installed, will release trapped air bubble that keeps wire from fully engaging onto the cap.
