89 bogs when ran through puddles and tips

I wasnt sure if it was the cap and wires getting wet or if I was getting water around carb.
I have a weber carb with a open air filter right on top of the carb.

Sounds exactly like mine The reason mine does it is the filter, it'll get hit with that first splash and restrict the intake.

I learned a redneck way to fix it from a bunch of rednecks while offroad. They took a dorito bag and clamped it between the filter plates over the front of the filter, so the front is protected while the back can still suck air...and the thing works!
