Intermittent Miss

I have recently got my TC 3.3Litre Ford Cortina. I am cleaning it up for road worthy. I have got to fix the brakes and a few other things. Anyway I decided to wash the engine bay and motor. (A big mistake I know) I washed it with degreaser and water. It ran fine so I was happy. I took it down to a show in the morning and it was running really good. Then I came to pick it up and it is missing now. It seems as though the ignition leads are not firing right or as if there is water in them or something. Anyway I am at a loss, I have no idea what more I can check. It still runs but you can tell that it is missing.

Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks for reading.

Kind Regards,
