I'm pretty sure I have one you can try/have Matt. I'm going to try to make the meeting this month.

I guess that was just my first thought since folks mention waterproofing the distributor etc for water crossings. Symptoms seemed consistent in my mind. But some of the explanations on this thread make sense too

Yep, stock Aisan. I was able to roll all the way through the snowdrifts so they were soft so there was no shock or bashing per se. In fact one section was just hitting some snow on the side of the road that drifted up and into the engine bay

How old are the wires? Old wires can be sensitive to moisture. Do you put anything in the boots to seal against the plugs and cap terminals? I think you can run some di-electric grease to help with the water-proofing...
