Anything electrical, most the wiring is around by the alternator so avoid getting it to damp around there. Also avoid the dizzy cap and spark plugs.

Every now and then i give my engine a blast with the jetwash at the local garage just to wash off and oil and grime (my rocker lid seeps regardless of new seals and washers) and i've never had any problems starting up afterwards.

dont worry about avoiding anything if the car is running  was everything in the engine bay

only avoid everything eletrical if the car is'nt running
