You could do a permanent move to the cab so you dont have to worry about it! LOL, that would be a big time project!

when i used to play in a lot of water in Virgina i would use permatex "sorry i could not speel it"and put it around all of the connectors and the distributor cap but the best way is to move everything that should not get submersed in water to the cab

Don't know about the coil pack but you can move the computer to behind the glove-box cover. There is just enough wire but you lose the glove box. If I remember I'll take a pic; it's in my b-II.

Ford must have had one of those great engineering moments :lamp: when they decided to move the computer from the cab to the engine compartment.

Yeah, it wasn't too smart on their part. Especially considering how much dead space there is behind these bulky dashes on 95+ models.

im glad they moved it to where it is it used to be lower in the kicker panel and it suck being there the comp is an easy fix cuz they already (from fthe factory) sealed the sides of the comp all you have to do is run some silacone on the wire side. the things you have to worry about is everything else now lol
