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.
