semi mudflaps, cut down and bolted to the inner fender well, but shoved on top of the frame rail down in around the engine block...anywhere you can put them to keep spray from going up around the motor.

or you could build almost a blanket under the motor with mudflaps...one bolted to the radiator support up front and then swing back up towards the oil pan, then use one on each side (bolted to either the innner fender or frame, then kind of hook all three of them together under the oil pan (bolted with large fender washers)

Pull your dist. cap and put a bead of silicon sealant around the contacting edge, then press it back onto your distributor...that problems solved, yea it makes it a little more work when changing it out, but it'll keep you running through that mud hole :-)

What he said.. and make sure you have dielectric grease on either end of your plug wires. :)

My engine compartment is permanently stained brown. The only side effect, is that sometimes it really stinks. :)

1) Thats not dirty
2) I agree and disagree with what chuck said... run the silicon around the inner edge of the cap, not to large of a bead though. Then let it dry, and then install... it works like a gasket, and still allows you to get the cap off.
3) Dielectric grease is your friend. Learn to love it.
