It could be duff HT leads as you rightly suspect but I also notice from the pictures the coils itself appears to quite dirty. The coil is a separate unit and it is the black squatre box into which the HT leads connect. Dirt, gunge or dampness in that area can cause leads to misfire so it may well worth cleaning that area and checking the leads and other electrical connections first. As you say the plug connectors on the leads are quite long.

Have yoou had a look at the plugs yet and if so are any two worse than the others
