Hey beschmit- Obviously something is getting wet that shouldn't be getting wet. I would check the distributor cap and rotor for signs of cracks. They are easy to replace. Just be sure you put the wires back in the right places. Good luck from Bovan.

Another common problem is your wires. The rubber does tend to break down with age.
