    What do you do to keep your distributer happy when playing in the mud and water? Its kinda in a ****ty spot for off-roading. I hate having my truck stall in the middle of a mud hole.

    Cap and rotor are standard GM stuff so get yourself a marine cap and use dielectric grease to seal everything possible.

    start using inexpensive wires and a decent cap. this way when you toss the wires and cap all at once it wont hurt so much.

    now the fun begins. find a plastic container that is about 2 inches larger than your dist cap. cut 10 holes in it for the wires to pass through. make sure they line up nice. feed the wires through the cap and a breether tube as well. plug everything in in the order it needs to be. MAKE SURE ITS CONNECTED WELL. a bit of dielectric grease and then tape them down with electrical tape. now push the cover over the cap and will with self expanding foam.

    RTV this down to your distributor being carefull to not get to much inside the dist.

    like i said use inexpensive wires...

    honestly I haven't had a problem with it being up front. but I haven't sunk it that deep yet and I have electric fans that can get shut off for deep water.
