[DML] Spark plug boot hopping


This weekend I replaced my old fuel lines with Hervey's stainless 
ones.  After a little trial and error, I was able to find and eliminate 
all the leaks around the distributor top.  When I started it to check 
for any leaks, I kept hearing a popping sound coming out of the engine 
compartment that I hadn't heard before.  After quite a bit of searching 
I finally found the sound.  Apparantly, the middle spark plug boot on 
the left side was hopping up and down making a popping sound.  The 
spark plugs were replaced about two weeks ago, but I am almost positive 
they were tightened down to specification.  My question is first off, 
what would be causing this? and is it harmful to my engine if I don't 
get it remedied right away?  Thanks in advance for any help.
