Best Answer

each electrode sticking up out of the top of the distributer cap that you attach the plug and coil wires to, is called a tower. So a distributer cap will have more than one tower. If it has a center one, that will be the coil wire tower, and the ones surrounding it in a circle will be the plug wire towers.
