what I do Is to fill the screen in the bottom of the distributor with sealler, and stop the madness, kind of a BS idea any way!!! put a vent in the bottom??? gm sure listened to ford on that one

Ok not to say your wrong but I was told not to close them off because then it woudnt vent properly but I never dealt with this before and its about to **** me off because Ive dumped tons into this truck for it to be something stupid make me get rid of it. If pluging them is whats recomended Ill try it.

if the moisture is causing your truck to miss one thing you can do is spray a thin coat of cooper seal inside your distributor cap. when i was told about it i didnt think it would work but it stopped mine from missing.
