When the one on my '94 Firebird grenaded, I replaced the distributor with a 94 unit and used a vented cap from a newer model. The vented cap plumbed into the airbox behind the air filter. Then I drilled a hole and JB-Welded a vacuum hose pipe into the distributor housing. The other end plugged into manifold vacuum. This kept a stream of clean dry air flowing through the unit at all times. Just in case, I sealed every joint with permatex. Cost about $300 total.
Of course, my '91 Corvette has the distributor on top of the engine where it's supposed to be.

ROFL!
I had a Vega long ago (go ahead, laugh) that had some of Chevy's finest engineering. The alternator was mounted low and was flooded every time you hit a big puddle. You hit water, the gauge would swing over to discharge, and then after a few minutes it would dry and go on. Obviously, an alternator was not designed to run underwater, so eventually, it would die.
It was a common problem, and the Chevy guys who put it there were obviously retired by the time the new guys put the Optispark down there like that.
Stupidity, it runs in circles.

I have a friend who is a retired Chevy test engineer. He said the only difference between him and me when working on these cars is that he cusses them by name.
