Check your distributor cap seal. Sounds like there's a wire issue somewhere.

check your dist cap for tightness and cracks. put some dialectric grease on the dist cap contacts and SP contacts. run a bead of silicon on caps mating surface. check that wire have no cracks.

start your engine, take a spray bottle of water and start spraying around (distributor, plug wires, also vacume hoses)

Was your YJ FI or Carb? If you really want to run a lot of the wet stuff, a carb is the only way to go. FI just has more things H20 can screw up.

considering he'd have to drive across the atlantic to do it, I think it's a safe bet he won't. Soaked my distributor cap a couple times in the Pines so I do get you point. Water Rd can be a ***** after it rains.
