Default I have a 1993 Toyota pickup. Heavy rain today, engine area wet now wont start?

I just got this truck, 3 days new to me, and had been running great! First
day, sunny, warm and dry, ran great. The second day raining lightly and I
noticed that my truck wasn't idling right, but got me from point a-b. Today
it has rained alot and I've gone through a few larger puddles and the engine
has died on me. I had to get towed home as its still raining and the engine
compartment is still wet. I've checked the spark plugs and they seem dry,
fine. Where would I begin to rule out things other than this?

Thanks J

and clean coil caps.

Disturbutor cap give it a shot of wd40 inside, wipe excess, put back on , try start, it will run smooth.
there is probably a hairline crack and lets dampness in..replace cap if this works
