Ive heard WD40 works great as well for drying out the disty. Ive never done it myself, but I should carry a can of WD40 cause im always getting water in the disty.

Water got into the distributor and wouldn't get out. After inspection, there were hair-line cracks in the distributor cap, so I replaced it.
Now it runs great!

Keep at it. Are you getting spark to the plugs? Pull one of the plugs, ground it out and with someone cranking the engine check to see if that plug is sparking. Be careful. Might want to hold onto the plug wire with a pair of needle nose plyers and wear a pair of kitchen gloves (the rubber kind) hehehe... or just make sure your not standing in water.
Since you drove through a puddle and stalled the car, chances are its the disty. Cant think of anything else.

squirt some wd into the cups on the disty-coil wire too.
It's not so much the water that will cause the spark to ground out, it's the minerals in the water, that can be left behind. If you see light deposits flush it with isopropyl (rubbing) alchohol.
