Think I did hasn't run the same since. Replaced the cap rotor coil plugs and wires. Ran fine for about two weeks and now no spark. I'm going to try the ignition control module next. Hopefully that fixes the problem. If not someone suggested the coil pick up. It's been upgraded to hei. Any help would b much appreciated

Just out of curiosity...Did you happen to check the oil? Looks like the jeep was deep enough to possibly pull water into the intake.

At least this time the pic was posted first and not 10 pages later. As was mentioned - the link gives great advice about drying out your engine.

Yes I changed all the fluids I even had to drop the tank as it was full of water. My buddy made a sticker for me that says little red submarine. I haven't put it on yet and don't think I ever will
