Sounds like you might have some bad plug wires that the water caused to short out or maybe water in the distr. But that just a guess. I never use water to wash off a motor any more cause it gives the electrical components hell if they nor perfect and still factory sealed. Might try removing the distr cap and wiping the inside down with a dry rag. At least that's where I would start.
