i did replace it but it has low rpm and idles low i am wondering if the distributor could have gotten damaged

Moisture can some times damage the components,but if the car cranks good from first start ,i would not change it.may need to adjust it thoe,may be just a little bit out,from the way low rpm.

The disrtibutor,undo bolt a bottom and rotate,adjust your idle up,listen to car you will know when it revs up ,your rpm gauge should be around 800 rpm,at idle.
