Sure sign of cracked distributer cap. Replace cap and this fix the stalling.

If water is getting into the engine bay and getting onto the motor maybe a little slower through the puddle next time.

GDay Rickster,

re the charge light staying on, perhaps the brushes in the alternater are going. Easy and cheap to replace but might be an indication that alternator will need replacing soon. Only a thougt but I'm sure there be a more qualified from someone else soon though.
