Sounds like it's susceptible to moisture. A simple tune up may fix it. To test this theory, once you get it running, mist the engine with a spray bottle of plain water. If it starts running rough and/or quits you need a tune up. That's new spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor. HTH. -Jim
