I have experienced similar problems resulting in a lifter and rod blwon causing engine replacement to be required from the water in the filter element. Has any one else had similar problems?

I personally have not had the problem. But yes I have seen others with similar problems from water ingestion to the intake. When water even in small amounts enters the cylinder and the compression stroke takes place water does not compress. If enough water is in the cylinder on the compression stroke it can cause bent rods and broken pistons. I have seen this happen with inboard boat engines.

Pre 2003 Fords had a problem, and they added a tube and shield to correct the problem.
Then the problem was low air flow due to restricted access.

I have modified both the tube and the shield, and have a "slip in shield for the rainy season.

So far so good!!
