Getting the Wheeling Fever
UPDATE: OK - changed out Distributor O-ring and added even newer plug wires and STILL having reluctant starting on wet mornings!

Any other suggestions? Maybe Ignition coil?? .....Ignition Relay switch??

Thanks for the reply Cheesy

I watched that video and tried spraying water on the Coil with the car running............ And It Stalled Right Out!
I unpluged both coil connections and they were dry but the T connector had a little electrode corrosion. I used sandpaper and cleaned the T and wiped off any moisture and it fired right back up!

So car stalling out when coil is wet means..... what? It's shorting out?.....but why, from age? Replacing the Coil is next I guess.

Sorry that didn't help. I'll keep looking. If I come up with anything, I'll post it.

Hey Cheesy Oh no, I think it did help. I pinpointed the coil shorting out the car when wet as having a crack or defect, so ordered a new one.........so yeah, that did help.....we will see when I put the new one on if that solves the problem.
Thanks again!!
