I'm willing to consider and discuss about anything, so please tell me how this cover keeps water out of the distributor cap/cap adapter?

Since the cover is just keeping moisture out of an EXTERNAL area that has drain holes in the bottom anyway...

Notice the drain holes in the depressed areas of the vacuum advance mounting boss?
How does the cover keep them from letting water in UNDER that cover?

The only real 'Exposed' area under the cap or under the cap adapter with the updated cap and rotor is where the TRIGGER PLATE vacuum advance arm 'Sweeps' in it's arc around the center shaft...

Since the cover doesn't come up far enough to contact the distributor cap or cap adapter and seal out water,
Or am I missing something I can't see in the image you posted?
