Since you mentioned the trans was recently out and the problem intensifies when the left side gets wet, the first thing you should do is verify that the CKP sensor wiring isn't/wasn't pinched between the block and bell housing. Also check inside the connector fo signs of moisure intrusion. If all that checks out, you need a scan tool that can read OBDII monitors so you can see which cylinder is causing the problem. I would then scope the CKP pattern and see what it looks like. If the pattern is normal, move onto a leakdown test to check for any compression loss due to worn or damaged components.
