I had the same problem with my 85 Cab, but I thought it was caused by the minor damage on the top. After getting the top replaced (which it needed anyway) I continued to have the same issue. After some investigation, I found that my problem was actually linked to a clog in the tray (rain tray?)under my hood and closest to my wipers. I just removed the leaves, dirt, etc. that had collected there over time, and it hasn't happened since. Not sure if this could be the source of your problem as well, but its worth checking out!
during heavy rain storms the passenger side floor gets soaked with water. I have removed the interior carpeting and the insulation behind it is wet also, so I suspect the windshield seals. Can you direct me as to how to replace them?
