I've got an '85 K5 that has started shutting down on me when I try to go through a water hole out on my hunting lease. The water's not all that deep, maybe up to the top of the bumper in the deepest spot and I'm running stock suspension with Pro-Comp 31x12.5 Mud Terrains. I never used to have this problem and I have been through the same spot and litterailly pushed a bow wave up over the hood and it never even hick-up'd. Now I'm afraid to try and go through it. I can't figure out what would be shutting the engine down. The first time it happened I had to wait about 10 min and then it finally started back up. I was already coming out of the water hole and only the back wheels and tail pipe were in the water. The only thing I can think of is the batttery cable going to the starter. Would getting that connection wet short out the electrical system, and of si, what does everyone do to correct the problem?
