Tesla coil capacitor?

Made a Lynden jar capacitor and my TC won't spark at the gap but I can hear my capacitor trying to work what do I do

Picture of Tesla coil capacitor?
Look at the cap in the dark. I suspect its leaking.

Ok tonight would that be because of the inner stuff. And if I make more than one would I set them on metal and splice the tops leads or wire bottom to top
