Drain holes are clear on mine, but it'll still miss like crazy in heavy rain.

Coils, wires, caps, plugs grounding out in the wet..pick one??? could even be pulsar wires...spray it all with sealer..and check coils for cracks..

At night or in your garage..get out the hose spray it while running look for arcing..helps to have a helper...

I don't know about a hose...but I use a mister bottle filled with water, and just mist the various electrical parts, instead of hosing down the entire thing. :)

Cracked plug caps turned out to be the culprit for me.
